Details

Nebbiolo 'Il Clown' Andrea Scovero 2014, organic wine, natural wine, wild yeast fermentation, very low yields, rich, concentrated Nebbiolo bristling with fine dark fruits and spice. The Clown is naturally made Nebbiolo from very low yielding vines. Andrea likes his Nebbiolo with depth and intensity. A combination of natural production in his vines, some green harvesting and a rigorous selection of only the best fruit at harvest makes for a yield of only about 20 hectolitres per hectare. The wine is smooth and supple, full bodied with dark fruits, notes of liquorice, balsamic, some leather and dried flowers. The refinement is for 1 year to 18 months in an old chestnut barrel and the production is tiny, a mere 1200 bottles in a good year.

Andrea Scovero is based in Bionzo in the Asti zone of Piemonte, a historic area for the production of the fantastic Barbera grape. Andrea is a wine maker and an artist, he took over from his father and converted his now 6 hectare farm to natural production. His aim was simple to produce the type of wine which he wants to drink himself. Andrea is a humble man, a quiet artisan, he is in love with his land, his work and with all the people who share this agricultural way of life. Andrea is searching for the right harmony between the wealth of nature and man's intelligence. To many people the result are very good indeed, the production is small and often the difficulty is getting hold of the wine. We are lucky enough to have found him and we love his Barbera, rich Nebbiolo, funky Sauvignon Blanc and winter Rose. The wines have a farm worker's honesty, alive , real, with the colours of the spring. His Barbera is one of contrast, subtle yet intense, layered but with a simple easy drinkability and robust heartiness. It works well with hearty Pork and Beef dishes but also from the fridge on a hot day, it is a belter. The cool labels are designed by an artist friend who did them in exchange for a few cases of his wine!
