Cappa Stone Nebbiolo

2012 Nebbiolo

The History

Cappa Stone Wine originates from the Calabrian mountains which is an icon in Southern Italy. In the mountain’s cave their Italian grandparents fled for their lives during the war time.

It symbolizes life, fulfilment and opportunity. We have utilised this experience to produce wines that are made for all to enjoy.

Winemaking/Viticulture

Our Nebbiolo grapes were harvested in the cool of the
night from the only vineyard in Clare Valley that has Nebbiolo, once the fruit had reached it’s optimum flavour level.
It was then crushed in a tank and cold soaked for 24 hours. The must was then fermented at temperatures
between 22-25 degrees with barolo yeast in an open fer- menter.The ferment was then pressed off skins with a basket press once sugar dry and racked to barrel.The wine spent 15 months in old French oak barrels. 

Tasting Note

The oak is subtle with a dusty tannin structure, making this wine a fabulous to have with a saucy meat dish. Our Nebbiolo is a traditionally grown variety of Northern Italy.Aromas and flavours of cherry, chocolate, spice and savory notes.
