2010 Vallana "Cuvee Bernardo Vallana" Spanna Colline Novaresi

SKU #1131659

When I first got into this business (farther back than I want to think about), I was exposed to some 'old' wines from the 1950s and 1960s with the appellation of 'Spanna'. The rustic labels foretold the character of the wine. These wines had soul, and the flavors that poured out of them were pure, powerful, and made me feel at home. Antonio Vallana created this wine with the 'Camino' label in homage to his father Bernardo, who loved to sit by the fireplace ('camino' means fireplace in Italian) with his friends and drink wine. The camaraderie, warmth and friendship of this idea truly warms my heart. Antonio's great-grandson, Francis Fogarty (yes, he's Italian!) carries on the family business now. One proviso: to really get the most from their Nebbiolo-based wines, use a Burgundy glass. I also recommend decanting, while you’re getting the fire going. If you are in San Francisco, there's no better month to have a roaring fire on a cold, cold night than the month of July! If you’re in warmer climates, a campfire will do the trick. I hope you try these wines and let them warm your heart as they do mine. Vallana Spanna wines from the 1950s and 1960s are still drinking well today! (Greg St. Clair, K&L Italian Buyer)

100% Nebbiolo. 2010 was a superb vintage for this area and you can almost feel the sun’s rays fleshing out this wine’s rich, full body. Though drinkable now, this wine has a pedigree for long aging. Decant for an hour or two and enjoy by the fire!
