Pizzini Nebbiolo 2009

Due to the fertile soils of the King Valley, the area was originally used for cultivation of hops and tobacco. I would love to see the brewing side of the area come back as I think that would be another interesting journey that the area could take us on.

Pizzini Nebbiolo 2009

Pizzini is the god father of Italian style wines in Victoria and Australia for that matter. These medium bodied style wines are perfect for the food that we eat and it is easy to go back for a second glass. While the flavours are more prominant in this wine than that of the Italian counterparts, the flavours of potpourri, roasted meats, smoked cherries, damp earth and exotic herbs are less Aussie and more European. There is a rustic tannin structure underneath but it takes second fiddle to the beautiful and interesting flavours. This is a beautiful Nebbiolo with Australian style.
