About The Wine
In Giaconda you see the rare meeting of inspired winemaking and truly great terroir. The wines have a sense of gravitas to them, a precision that few can muster.
The Nantua Nebbiolo is a wine raised from the younger plantings of Nebbiolo on the great Giaconda site.
This is a more exuberant expression of the variety than the more brooding and muscular Estate version from this producer.
Made in only small quanities, this is only the first release of this wine and the prescious few bottles available are disappearing quickly into the cellars of those in the know.
Nebbiolo fan? Giaconda fan? There's some great value on offer here.
There are few names in Australian wine as revered as those of Giaconda and its founder/owner/winemaker, Rick Kinzbrunner.
Since 1982, Rick has dedicated himself to the pursuit of vinous excellence in the Beechworth region.
They are most known for their incredibly powerful Chardonnay, with Shiraz and Nebbiolo not far behind. Kinzbrunner's signature style is a rare combination of power and finesse.
For the Estate wines, production is extremely limited and they generally sell out upon release.
Giaconda is a special producer that thoroughly deserves its reputation as one of the country's finest domains.
