Historical notes

Nascetta's Ups and downs

The vine has historically 3 meanings: Nascetta, Anascetta or Nas-cetta (if they are pronounced separately, the "E" is silent). It's the traditional case of a super autochthonous vine variety. It's propably the only real autochthonous vine of the territory (at the beginning it was centered in the municipality of Novello). Someone has ascribed it to the Vermentino family or to the sardinian Nasco one but, apart from some similarities, there are huge differences (especially with Nasco). It has unique characteristics induced by its territory. In the past, it had a negative period caused by the arrival of international vine varieties. Fortunately, since the 2000s, there has been a revival of the production in the original areas and a limited extension to other Piedmontese areas, such as Asti. It's a unique and precious vine variety, not only for its limited quantity, but above all for its high production quality. Today it is the only native white grape variety of the Barolo area.

Native stories

With the unsalted bread and white truffle 

We're in Nizza Monferrato for a business lunch by a famous local restaurateur. There, we are fascinated by a fantastic finger-food appetizer. This appetizer is made up of dark bread squares all covered with white truffles of Alba, combined with an unexpected and delicious Nascetta wine.

The Territory

Novello and Monferrato

In Piedmont it's present only in the Langhe, in particular Novello, and a limited part of the Monferrato.
