Diego Conterno Langhe Nascetta

Piedmont’s true native, white grape may be Nascetta (say nass-CHET-ta), a rare gem that is slowly making a comeback in the Langhe region after being forgotten for too many years. Historically, Nascetta was made into a sweet wine (mostly for religious services) yet as a dry wine, its complexity and aromatic intensity are immediately captivating. Citrus and pineapple, savory notes of sage and rosemary.
