Part of the fun at Plonk is releasing back vintages of wine. We don't have a lot of the 2018, so get in quick, we do have a few cheeky magnums of 2018 however!
The Nonna Gisella 2018 has a weird and wonderful process. Part of the juice is fermented cooler, the other part warmer. This adds a few layers of fresh and stewed fruit but also palate weight. It sees a stainless steel ferment and old oak maturation. The fruit profile is full of red cherry, spiced plums and some orange peel. The palate is super juicy upfront, but textured and medium in body. Scented, spicy with a lot of fruit and a lick of oak toast.
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. Nebbiolo wasn't the only Italian red variety, however, with Sangiovese becoming just as important.
