From an ancient and precious indigenous vineyard in Novello, Nascetta was very popular in the 19th century, Nascetta is the only indigenous white variety from Langhe and Elvio Cogno is responsible for saving the grape from extinction in the early 1990s. Since the grape was not part of the Italian National Registry at that time, Elvio Cogno gave the fantasy name ‘Anas-Cëtta’ with their first bottling in 1994. After the success of the grape locally, “Nascetta del Comune di Novello” finally became a sub-appellation of Langhe DOC in 2010 (it must be 100% Nascetta.) A semi-aromatic grape, Nascetta has hints of sage, rosemary, a waxy texture and develops petrol notes with age.
