About This Wine

A powerful and serious Nebbiolo here that with some age showcases what makes the grape so great.

Dry and savoury, with significant, yet well integrated tannins that highlight why this varietal, when made with intent, truly needs some years for it to unfurl and showcase its true self. Earthen with tarry notes, dark cherry, and well-structured, this is in the zone as we speak.

No need to worry about cellaring, it will appeal to the true Nebb fanatic now, yet still has more to give with time.

About Galli Estate

Galli Estate was founded on the vision of post-WWII Italian immigrant Lorenzo Galli, to create a Tuscan -nspired estate in Australia.

Two sites were especially selected for this project, with their vineyards based on the volcanic soils of Sunbury, and the famous red Cambrian vineyards of Heathcote.

Farming their vineyards organically, and utilising 100% recycled water for irrigation, Galli in committed to sustainable viticulture and winemaking.

With Alistair Park leading the winemaking team, there is also a focus on natural ferments, and minimal intervention in the winemaking process.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"ruit grown at Heathcote. 100% whole berries, 50+ days on skins, 18 months in old French oak. The colour, aromas, and flavours and are all distinctly varietal, albeit at the ripe and sweet-fruited end of the spectrum. The winemaking approach has been particularly successful achieving the distinctive tannin profile so pivotal to quality nebbiolo." Steven Creber (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Earthy, savoury scents with plums, dried cranberry, tar and dark chocolate going on. Fine, chewy tannins wrap in dark cherry, dark chocolate, twiggy-brambly notes. Very dry, very savoury, powerful in tannins. Serious stuff here." Mike Bennie (Wine Front)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
