Carlone Davide Croatina Colline Novaresi 2016 Product #33009 (In Stock)

As Antonio Galloni said a couple of years ago, "Make a note of Davide Carlone. These wines will become super hot as soon as consumers start to discover them." A bit of a story here, one worth drinking. Boca was once a flourishing extension of the Langhe's Nebbiolo vineyards, but by the 1980s, only 3ha of vines remained - one belonging to diesel mechanic Davide Carlone.  Today, Le Piane is the best known estate here, but much of their fruit comes from Davide's slowly growing plantings of Nebbiolo, Vespolino and this tiny slice of ancient Croatina.

This is that wine from 80-100 year-old vines never treated with chemicals and still farmed by hand.  The grape is also known as Bonarda, and it's all about fun, fresh, juicy fruit - a wine to enjoy rather than cogitate over.  Although if you think about it, you'll notice red and blue fruit and accents of licorice and exotic spice.  The fine tannins make this great with food - pretty much anything casual and fun.  Very rare and supremely compelling!
