It’s not that name that makes the wine but it’s the wine that makes the name
It all began in 2008 when the Barolo tasting commission said one of our wines “wasn’t up to snuff.” We couldn’t believe it, especially because we were extremely happy with that year’s vintage.
Still hoping to get the greenlight, we submitted a second sample. Lo and behold, the second sample — the same wine as the first — was approved! We chalked it up to the byzantine world of wine regulations in Italy and Europe.
We were determined nonetheless to share the “unapproved” wine with the world. That’s when we realized it’s not the name that makes the wine but the wine that makes the name.
And thus was born “No Name.”
No Name is made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes.
A wine to drink regardless of the occasion.
In keeping with the tradition of the great wines of Langa, this wine ages for at least 3 years in cask and 6 months in bottle.
Ruby red in color with garnet highlights, this wine delivers lingering notes of violet, rose, ripe fruits, and hints of spice on the nose. Velvety and well-balanced, with polished tannins and earthy flavors that linger on the palate.
This is a structured wine that will pair well with roast and grilled meats and aged cow’s and goat’s milk cheeses.
