About The Wine
Brendan and Laura Carter love their Nebbiolo, and they learned from their time spent in the variety's spiritual home of Barolo that many of the best early drinking examples also contain a large proportion of Barbera.
When Barbera combines with Nebbiolo, it adds a juiciness and natural acidity that can elevate this great grape to another level. Such is the case with the Truffle Hound.
As you might expect it, it's a wine built for sheer, joyous drinkability.
Brendan reckons this is his favourite version yet, and if you're after a moreish light-to-medium red with a bit of x-factor, then this is just a no-brainer.
About Unico Zelo
Unico Zelo is the project of winemaking couple Brendan and Laura Carter. In their words, their aim is to create “Italian-inspired, textural and site-expressive wines” and “Australian examples of Mediterranean varieties in an approachable and jovial fashion.”
Since bursting onto the scene in 2014 with their eye-catching, outrageously good value alternative vino, the Carters have spread their wings and their range.
They now make a large suite of wines, including single vineyard examples of Fiano, Nero d'Avola and Nebbiolo.
They are one of the most dynamic winemaking duos in the Adelaide Hills.
