Unico Zelo Pastafarian Nebbiolo

WHY WE LOVE IT

  • You know what we are also fond of? PASTA. We’re die-hard pastafarians and love a great Nebb with our bowl of noodles. So, we crafted this wine in an approachable and jovial style built for the new world, with a nod to old world, old school Nebbiolo – perfect with your next Sugo.
  • The grapes are grown in alluvial quartz-shot clay.
  • This is a beautiful vegan friendly wine from Adelaide Hills, Australia.

Varietal Composition: 100% Nebbiolo

Elaboration: We’re incredibly lucky to work with one of the most prestigious vineyards of Nebbiolo in this country, with some of Australia’s most revered examples coming from the place we call home – Gumeracha, Adelaide Hills. We hand pick the fruit as a team.

Tasting Notes: Aromatically it’s a twist on the classic “tar and roses” adage; think more violets and pencil shavings with a whiff of cardamom from some silky oak. But this is far more red fruited and juicy than your average Nebb, with ripples of strawberries and crushed black olives over the top of a pitch perfect balance of fresh acidity to fine grain tannins.
