Extended Specs


Nibiô is a very old, pre-clonal variety of Dolcetto that used to be the main grape in the Gavi region before being eclipsed by Cortese later in the 20th century. This is very serious Dolcetto with impressive layers of iron and graphite. However, it is remarkably fresh, too, with brigh raspberry and cranberry notes that slowly integrate into the tannic structure. Definitely a wine with the focus and building blocks for long aging, but retains a lean, energetic finesse that is quite different from the more brooding wines of, say, San Fereolo, another master of age-worthy Dolcetto. In fact, San Fereolo and Ulivi both use the same technique of submerging the cap for a longer, slower maceration. This sees three years in big barrels. [Jonathan Kemp 10/22/19]
