Pizzini La Volpe Nebbiolo 2019 is another seriously cracking wine. Like the 2018 it rivals some of the Piedmont expressions. Part stainless steel ferment with a lick of old oak allows the purity of fruit to really sing.
The Pizzini family moved to Australia sometime after WWII and started growing grapes in the late ’70s. 1990 marked the first vintage under their own label, Pizzini Wines. Nebbiolo was the first, paying homage to their Italian roots. Therefore becoming specialists in Italian varietals in Australia. They continue to set the benchmark for quality and value for money, one of many reasons why we love them.
Although not the only Italian variety, Nebbiolo is the cornerstone of Pizzini's offering. Pizzini La Volpe Nebbiolo 2018 showcases how well Australia produces Nebbiolo. The point to note is that the vines are very well established, not grafted over. Once opened, the aromas jump out the bottle, super-expressive and vibrant with juicy red cherries on the nose and palate. Crunch tannin, a lick of spicy texture and a scented length. We have a couple of other Nebbiolo that differ in style, for instance, the Cornonamento.
