Why a Nebbiolo? Sandro Arcangeli is a first generation Italian, hence the desire to make at least one wine with an Italian heritage. There is in total just under 30 hectares of this grape planted in South Africa. This wine comes from a 12 year old single vineyard in Rawsonville and has been expressed by many as South Africa’s finest version of this variety.

‘From Rawsonville Nebbiolo. Whole-bunch fermentation before maturation in old 500-litre barrels. A faint whiff of play dough before rose, cherry and a hint of spice. The palate is light-bodied and fresh with powdery tannins, the finish gently savoury.’ 90 points Christian Eedes.
