Domenica Nebbiolo 2018

The fruit is crushed and destemmed, and fermented in concrete, for about a month. Maturation is in a traditional wooden botti of 1600 litres capacity.

The fruit is crushed and destemmed, and fermented in concrete, for about a month. Maturation is in a traditional wooden botti of 1600 litres capacity. A long maturation of 3 years is required to allow the tannin to soften, and the intense, bright fruit to deepen, and allow some of the secondary, more subtle aromas and flavours to shine through.

Domenica sits 460m above sea level atop the granite ridge sweeping away to the southwest of Beechworth. The single acre of Nebbiolo is grown in a cool, protected southerly pocket on red shale soil at the southern end of the property. This soil holds more water than the granite, allowing the typically large canopy to maintain its integrity throughout the summer, usually without supplementary irrigation. Tiny yields of three or four bunches per vine develop the intensity of fruit required to make Nebbiolo with beautiful structure, and a deep complex core of ripe fruit.
