2002 - Nonno Zito Nebbiolo Bien Nacido Vineyard
A California Nebbiolo?
May 25, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star

Nonno Zito wines are made in true Piedmont style, but are actually part of the Ambullneo portfolio of wines.  This wine is named in honor of the maker's grandfather Calogero Zito, a native of Sicily, who immigrated with his wife Giovanna.  This particular wine, Giovanna-Jeanette, is from Bien Nacido Vineyards in Santa Maria Valley.  The power of the wine hits you from the deep, deep garnet hue and toasty, floral nose.  It possesses loads of dark fruit, chocolate, and tannins through the long finish.  Another age worthy wine from this vintner, it can overpowers now but will soften with age.  I love it after decanting for a full day. Selling for $60 and up, it was a steal on Wine Commune for under $30.  Cheers!

Wonderful wine. Medium bodied, nice acidity, brambly with milkweed on the nose. Nice example of what CA can do with Nebbiolo. It's not piedmont, but it's a nice quaffer. Had with roasted chicken, heirloom tomatoes and patatas bravas-the acidity and fruit complimented the meal well.
