The Famiglia range of wines is all about fine tuning the classic Italians into a contemporary Australian styling. A profound rendering of Nebbiolo, the unique varietal grape most responsible for the lovely wines of Piedmonte, sumptuous, dry and nicely spiced. An intriguing nose with hints of rose petal, leather and tar, for which Nebbiolo is renowned, but primarily a wine driven by red and black berry fruit flavours and aromas. Dress up your turkey and bring her along for a long leisurely lunch with La Famiglia Nebbiolo.
Nebbiolo is the king of northwest Italian red wine grapes, the signature of Piedmont and Lombardy. In the vineyard, Nebbiolo looks unimpressive, characterised by almost wild canopy growth, the berries range in colour from light to deep red. Grapes mature late in the season with low sugar and high acid levels. Following the harvest, fruit is crushed and transferred to tank for inoculation and eight days of vinification. Ferments are pumped over regularly to maintain consistent temperatures and to aid extraction from skins. Upon completion the batches are pressed into old French oak barrels for eighteen months maturation, before assembling into the final wine, stabilizing and clarification.
TASTING NOTES
A light hue of red. Lifted fresh rose petal and cherry aromas follow to the palate. Flavours are supported by hints of leather, black olive and a touch of savoury before a long but delicate finish. A great match with Italian cuisine, it will not dominate but marry beautifully with the robust flavours. Try with capelli d'angela, sugo di pomodoro and meatballs, bellissimo.

About Trentham Estate Wines
The Murphy Family migrated to Australia from Ireland in 1909 and were one of the first settlers to establish vineyards at Merbein 15km west of Mildura
The Murphys eventually moved to Trentham Cliffs in 1960 and re-developed one of the local properties which was once part of a large sheep station. Jack and Moya Murphy established their farm, which included plantings such as citrus, vegetables and grapes for fortified wines, and then later re-planted to specialize in varietal grapes. The vines flourished in the rich red loam over limestone soils, nurtured by water from the Murray River. The first vintage was produced in 1984, using only 6 tonnes of grapes. Trentham Estate»
