A sparkling bright red with a see through garnet heart, lighter towards the edges. The flavours are complex, lingering and enticing, put together with sweet strawberry, pomegranate and a cherry acidity zing. Tannins abound and form the tactile aspect to a thought provoking experience
"The 2013 vintage was Giulio Bertrand’s 10th crop from his treasured 1.6 hectare Nebbiolo vineyard. Made from imported Italian clones in the Italian manner on the Estate this wine delivers the feeling of gravitas normally associated with international Nebbiolo’s. With not many wines made from this cultivar in South Africa, Morgenster Italian Collection Nabucco is seen as a benchmark by many, validating Bertrand’s passion and investment to make great Italian wines on Morgenster.
This is a complete wine with heaps of elegance and essence. There is great underlying power and some plushness from the Italian varietal. Refined and deeply nuanced, Nabucco 2013 will need a few years to come together and will still offer much pleasure at age 20."
