Unico Zelo Truffle Hound Barbera Nebbiolo 2017
£121.50 Price Per Case ( 6 Bottles )
This wine does things a little differently.
Rather than fruity flavours, Truffle Hound explores the umami side of things. Initial presentation is smoky flavours, liquorice, and cardamom.
Their motto, "from the land we belong to" points at a passion for the land and its traditions.
This is a wine to truly embrace native Australian ingredients, and to pay homage to the indigenous peoples who had custodianship of the land for millennia.
"Juicy, bright, and enlivened", the three words used by the creators to describe their creation.
We're confident you'll enjoy this one.

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 savoury, earth-drenched truffles they can find. This is our early-released, approachable and jovial expression of Barbera & Nebbiolo - we aim to retain the higher aromatics,herbal savouriness for its amaro-like refreshment. For those that favour meaty, gaminess over bright plum-fruit. An exploration for umami-like refreshment. It presents with a smoky, amaro-like liquorice and cardamom spice. Given drive by a lively and juicy palate-weight and pucker with a bright yet savoury finish.
Method: 5 days on skins, co-fermentation, matured in stainless steel
