Codename:

Nobility

Today’s Jacuzzi Family Vineyards 2010 Sonoma County Nebbiolo marks a welcome return to one of our favorite Sonoma County vintners. Jacuzzi consistently produces wine of exceptional quality, and today’s offering is certainly no different.

Today’s wine is a distinctive Cali twist on a grape that’s most typically grown in the Piedmont region of Italy. More Zin-like than your classic Nebbiolo, today’s wine features deep flavors of red fruit, dry summer earth, and toasty baking spices.

At only $22.99, this is one reasonably priced Italian. Check out this video of winemaker Charlie Tsegeletos discussing his 2010 Nebbiolo:

Tasting Profile

Look:

A beautiful baked dark cherry in color.

Smell:

Dense, compacted red fruit notes slowly emerge from the glass, with aromas that are very similar to those of a Primitivo. Baked dark cherry, red raspberry, and mulberry are joined by sweet tobacco leaf, warm brown baking spices, and a faint echo of cherry cola.

Taste:

The flavor profile is very similar to the nose, with dense, reduced notes of red fruit greeting you initially. These flavors are quickly trailed by hints of a summer berry bramble, dried cranberry, cherry European licorice, lightly roasted coffee bean, and black peppercorn.

Finish:

Medium bodied and flavor packed, today’s wine has a lingering finish highlighted by grippy tannins that leave a pleasant slightly drying sensation along the edges of the palate.

Pairing:

A creamy risotto of wild mushrooms, saffron, and prosciutto.
