Truffle Hound Barbera/Nebbiolo

Truffle Hound Barbera/Nebbiolo

Clare Valley, South Australia

Affectionately known as ‘Truffle Hound’ - This wine pays homage to the locals in Barolo who drink freshly fermented Nebbiolo before they take their expertly trained dogs (and pigs!) in the cold, foggy mountains of Barolo to hunt for the most savory, earth-drenched truffles they can find.

This is Unico Zelo’s early-released, approachable and jovial expression of Barbera & Nebbiolo - which aims to retain the higher aromatics, herbal savoriness for its amaro-like refreshment. For those that favor meaty, gaminess over bright plum-fruit. An exploration for umami-like refreshment.

It presents with a smoky, amaro-like licorice and cardamom spice. Given drive by a lively and juicy palate-weight and pucker with a bright yet savory finish.
