Founded in 2001 by the Bellini brothers, La Prevostura is a newcomer to Northern Piedmont, one of Italyand#39;s oldest and most fraught wine regions. Lessona, the fruit source for this wine, was one of the first Italian regions to bottle wine and enjoyed international acclaim as far back as theandnbsp; 16th century, 200 years before the first Barolo was bottled. Post WWII Northern Piedmont became the seat of the textile industry and many of the uniquely acidic sandy soils were left to go fallow. This wine, comprised of Vespolina (15%) and Nebbiolo (85%), locally known as Spanna, is a brilliant example of this distinct terroir as well asandnbsp; the fresh energy revitalizing the region. Brilliant, refined and elegantly texture, Muntacc expresses the typical red fruits and exotic spice of Nebbiolo highlighted by meaty flavors and ferrous minerality owed to the acid soils. Essentially declassified Lessona, this is a must try for any Nebbiolo fan.
Acceptable Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo Vespolina mix. Excellent nose like a great Nebbiolo, but palette is so mild it’s almost tasteless. No off notes, but dull.
