2011 Three Hills Nebbiolo


The Nebbiolo variety originates from the Piedmont region of north-west Italy where it is responsible for some of the finest wines from that country, making it Italy’s most significant grape variety.  We love the tannins and the tar and roses aromatics that are typical of this variety.  The amount of tannin that the Nebbiolo grape brings to the wine can be confronting to many people. The wine should be enjoyed with food to appreciate its full flavour characteristics. 

AROMA: There are attractive aromas of dark cherry, eucolypt, ironstone, tar and roses with hints of cured meat, prune and truffle.

PALATE: Intense sour cherry, dark fruits, black olive, rosemary, bitter chocolate and green plum skin with typical and confronting fine dry Nebbiolo tannin. The palate is long and savoury with a black cherry aftertaste and noticeable tannin grip. A great compliment to Mediterranean food.

VARIETY: 100% Nebbiolo

ANALYSIS: Alc/Vol: 14.5%, Acidity: 7.4 g/L, pH: 3.71, Residual Sugar: < 0.5 g/L.
