Elvio Cogno - Langhe Nascetta del Comune di Novello 'Anas-Cëtta' 2020


Anas-Cëtta is an autochthonous historical variety specifically from Novello commune. Since the first limited production run in 1994, working with tenacity and love for the land of the Langhe, Elvio Cogno winery has used the memories of old-timers in Novello to produce a wine for the youngsters of the third millennium. Mentioned in winemaking documents as early as the second half of the 19th century, this white wine of Mediterranean origin has a sapidity reminiscent of the great hot-clime varietals such as Vermentino (from which, according to some ampelographical studies, it might derive).

Straw-yellow in color with golden highlights. The nose is fine and elegant with just the right intensity. It exudes complex, lingering scents of wild flowers and herbs, citrus and a hint of flint notes. The bouquet suggests acacia honey, grapefruit, sage and rosemary.

Serving suggestion: its pleasant, fresh and balanced structure makes it ideal as an accompaniment to vegetable dishes, white meats, raw fish, oysters and creamy cheeses.
