The most unusual and even most typical native variety of Novello, yet perhaps least-known, is not Barolo, as many believe; it is Nascetta, a white Piedmontese variety that emerges from a troubled, though fascinating, past. For a long time, this was a forgotten wine, made from just a few, meager rows of vineyard. It nearly went the way of extinction. It was a true enological discovery, its lost fate saved only by the foresight of several producers, including Elvio Cogno.


91/100 Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2016 Vintage)
"This is an irresistible white wine that offers a much-needed break from intense Barolo tasting. The 2016 Langhe Nascetta del Comune di Novello Anas-Cëtta is a fresh and citrus-driven wine with crisp acidity and tonic layers of white peach, garden herb and blanched almond. The wine boasts a very strong mineral vein that comes forward with almost-salty intensity. This wine did malolactic fermentation until the 2010 vintage, but is now completed without that extra step. Drink 2017 – 2022"
