"Following brief cold maceration to extract the aromas, the must is separated from the skins and fermented in stainless steel at a controlled temperature. After then being left to mature on its own yeasts, the wine is stored in this way: Nascetta in stainless steel while Chardonnay in barrique, until August, when the wine is bottled."
Nascetta: What is it?
The story of this variety began in the 1800s, recorded in town documents that refer to its cultivation in Alba and Mondovì in several parcels of land, called menzioni in Piemontese dialect. It was already well noted for its quality, and was largely sold as grapes in bulk. Later, in 1877, the first findings of the origins of its name appear from the studious Giuseppe of the Counts of Rovasendalo, who defined so-called "Anascetta" as "a very delicate grape and exquisite wine" in his Saga of a Universal Viticulture (Saggio di un'ampelografia universale). The old tome is still conserved today in the libraries of the Department of Arboreal Culture at the University of Turin.
The viticulturist Lorenzo Fantini also mentioned "Anascetta" in 1895, saying that the grape can boast of a "fineness equal to that of Moscato." His colleague Giovanni Gagna coined todayâs name "Nascetta," saying "it should to be used together with Moscato bianco and Favorita."
The merit of the grapeâs rediscovery goes not to scholars or researchers, but to producers. Elvio Cogno and Savio Daniele of the Winery Le Strette tasted a farmerâs wine made of Nascetta in the 1990s. They immediately understood its quality and fine structure, and began the first timid attempts at vinifying Nascetta in purity. Successive studies by Dr. Anna Scheider confirmed the native origins of the grape as a cultivar related to Grò blanc, native of the Susa Valley.
From the many-layered history of Nascetta and its story of rediscovery, it is clear how this variety warrants thorough study to best determine its unique characteristics and take advantage of its great potential. In addition, it requires a precise legislative framework so that subzones can be readily defined (thinking along the lines of a future DOCG certification), and a specific production discipline. In 2002, Nascetta entered the list of Langhe DOC wines; in 2010, it obtained the recognition of DOC Langhe "Nas-cetta" from the Township of Novello (note the dash is the only difference in the name), whose production is authorized only in the town and using 100% Nascetta grapes.
