2019 La Prevostura "Garsun" Piemonte

SKU #1555387

An elegant Nebbiolo-based blend from a small estate in Piemonte. Young vines, no oak, just a deliciously drinkable Italian red to accompany a steamy plate of pasta — or roast chicken, as K&L's Italian wine buyer, Greg St. Clair, would have it: "Over the past couple of decades, the region of Alto Piemonte has become a force, producing some of the most interesting Nebbiolo-based wines in Piedmont. Alto Piemonte? Yes! It means upper Piedmont, and it stretches from about 60 miles west of Milano to Gattinara, then west to Carema, about 35 miles north of Torino. More than a century ago this was the largest and most productive winegrowing region for reds in Piedmont, when Barolo and Barbaresco were not producing much of anything. The region went dormant for almost 70 years thanks to a couple of world wars and an overwhelming immigration from the countryside to the city. La Prevostura was reborn in 2001, and began making wines of exceptional quality. The 2019 La Prevostura Garsun Piemonte is a blend of Nebbiolo (65%), Vespolina (25%), and Croatina (10%). This wine is delicious! I would try this with a roasted chicken, but that’s just me!"

As Greg St Clair has mentioned above, this Nebbiolo based wine comes from the Northern Piemonte zone. More specifically, it's from Lessona which is approximately 40 miles northeast of Turin. Here the soils are an acidic combination of old marine sand and clay deposits which result in a very aromatic and elegant style wine. The "Garsun" is mostly Nebbiolo with Vespolina and Croatina blended in. We find this to be very approachable with wonderful notes of red fruit, earth, cedar and a hint of balsamic. It's a sublime Nebbiolo blend that drinks perfectly now..
