2012 Cava Maciel "Apogeo" Nebbiolo Baja California

SKU #1245100

Jorge Maciel started his winery in 2000 as a hobby, but his passion lead him to start selling his wine in 2005. As most Baja producers, he sells most of his tiny production of wine with in Mexico, but allocates a small amount to send here to the US. The Apogeo is 100% Nebbiolo, a varietal commonly planted and used all over Baja. This spends 16 months in barrique yet has soft, integrated tannins, unlike it's Italian counter part, this Nebbiolo is drinkable now. Notes of flowers, black pepper, cocoa and black fruits with juicy acidity and rich texture. (Olivia Ragni, K&L Wines Baja, California Buyer)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Nebbiolo

- Tar and roses are the two descriptors most associated with this red grape grown, almost solely, in Italy's Piedmont, where it has achieved fame under the guises of the incredibly and age-worthy wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. Characterized by chewy tannins, high acidity, high-tone cherry and raspberry fruit and truffle aromas and flavors, Nebbiolo has rightfully earned its reputation. Sadly the late-ripening varietal is quite delicate and is prone to disease as well as damage by hail that frequently pelts the region. Outside of Barolo and Barbaresco, Nebbiolo is grown in the DOCs of Gattinara, Spanna and Ghemme. The Nebbiolos of the Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC in the southeastern part of Piedmont are generally lighter and more immediately approachable versions of the grape, aged for less time than Barolo and Barbaresco, which also makes them less expensive. Langhe Nebbiolos are generally made from declassified fruit from the aforementioned regions of Barolo, Barbaresco and Nebbiolo d'Alba.
