Jacuzzi Family Vineyards
2010 Sonoma County Nebbiolo
California: Sonoma County
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:
A beautiful baked dark cherry in color.
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.
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.
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.
A creamy risotto of wild mushrooms, saffron, and prosciutto.
