Our 2017 vintage gave us the trifecta of gold medals from Wine Companion!
A nebbiolo of great complexity and savoury tannins.
Virago nebbiolo is made by Rick Kinzbrunner (Giaconda) along traditional Italian lines, incorporating wild fermentation, basket pressing and approximately 3 years maturation in 1600L Gamba oval casks. An excellent year on full display, giving rise to a dark and brooding nebbiolo of wild rosemary, thyme, saltbush, incense, black cherry and mandarin skin. A most complex and accomplished wine, of intrigue and discovery – such is nebbiolo's power – finishing firm, with a savoury tannin presence.
