“Ana’s-Cëtta” is the white #Nascetta wine by @elviocogno who helped bring the variety back from near extinction in the 1990s in the commune of Novello, #Langhe, #Piedmont.
The 2022 delivers aromas of honeysuckle, white peach, verbena and Mediterranean herbs. Apple, pear, quince and pineapple flavors then come into play. This quickly followed by a waxy texture, balanced by lime zest, with notions of crushed minerals on the finish.
The winery suggests it is “ideal as an accompaniment to vegetable dishes, white meats, raw fish, oysters and creamy cheeses.” Maybe not as ideal, but paired with rigatoni, sausage and fennel allowed some contrast to expose and heighten many of the sensations…BRAVO! — 22 days ago

Good color, mild nose, acidity is a little overwhelming other palate tastes.
Tanins are still noticed.
Much better after a couple of hours, the acidity fades and the wine is balanced. — 3 months ago
Drinking this after finishing Kermit’s book. I love him even more now. And I have an even fonder appreciation for the wines he imports! — 5 months ago
Lighter style Nebbiolo. Very earthy with some funk; dried red fruit too — 24 days ago
The notes of refreshing pairs and flowers hit the nose that make an everlasting effect when the tastes get caught up strengthening these bold crisp flavors! A sweet delectable wine. — a month ago
