Nebbiolo 2021, Lone Madrone
- Unit Price
Lone Madrone was the first wine club Zane ever joined, and it was because of this wine. Nebbiolo is a grape that originates in northern Italy, and this is an exceptional expression of the grape grown on the Central Coast. Aromas of cherry, along with spice box, and some very intriguing green herbs, give way to a dusty tannic structure that is both dry and juicy at the same time. This is a wine to discuss and contemplate, and we’d be surprised if you don’t drink it all!
About the Winery
Lone Madrone was founded in 1996 with the goal of producing distinctive wines from vineyards in the rugged limestone hills of Paso Robles. Growing slowly yet steadily since, the focus is largely on vineyards that are dry-farmed and head-trained, which winemaker Neil Collins believes to be “the purest expression of the unparalleled terroir of west Paso Robles.” Neil also feels that when you begin with grapes from vineyards of this quality, in these outrageous soils, it only makes sense to “let them sing for themselves without being masked by our hands.” To this end, all the wines are fermented with native yeasts and aged in predominantly neutral oak barrels.
