Nascëtta: A Great White from the Langhe
Pollenzo-Banca del Vino
The only variety of its genus, nas-cëtta is a white grape species that was born on the hills of Novello, a small village in the Langhe better known for its Barolo. Thanks to a group of voracious “vine-dressers” from the Manufacturers Association of Nas-cëtta of the Novello Municipality, who proudly defend the wine’s origins, today this white is on the list in many Langhe restaurants, and is even being imitated by producers in other towns. On offer we’ll have Nas-cëtta 2016, embellished with some older vintages to understand its different interpretations and how they stand the test of time. These will be coupled with some cheese-based tastings from the cooks of Albergo dell’Agenzia.
Six kilometers from Bra, Pollenzo is the other main hub of Cheese 2017 activities. A special shuttle service will take you from Bra to Pollenzo, so you can create your own program and move around easily without using your car.
