Nebbiolo Costa Bassa Fay 2010 Nebbiolo Costa Bassa Fay 2010

Marco Fay, the guy who makes this wine, has to be one of the nicest guys in the wine trade. You only have to meet the guy and you want to buy his wine but happily they are fantastic as well so i have no difficulty in always recommending them.   Nebbiolo from the Valtellina, (the valley that runs west to East from Lake Como across the top of Lombardy with just one mountain seperating it from Switzerland) doesn't quite have the potential for sublime profound wine that ages for decades like it does in Piemonte but nevertheless we are still talking about seriously delicious red wines from unqiue terroir.  The slopes are so steep that working the vines is back breaking labour and very labour intensive with 14 full time vignerons for only 15 hectares.  The cold winters and clean fresh air mean that a natural approach in vineyard and cellar has always been the default method for Marco and his Father Sandro before him.  The basic Nebbiolo is sensationally drinkable, relatively light for the grape variety but with loads of sweet fruit and lip smacking acidity.  Perfect red for drinking and drinking with all manner of foods.    A must try and once you have fallen for Costa Bassa, you will want to try the Cru Nebbiolos from the estate as well!  Buy now online
