Professional Wine Reviews for Attilio Contini Nieddera Igt 2015

Rated 91 by Decanter
Dark bright ruby. Perfumed nose of violets, blueberry, blackberry and botanical herbs. Bright and juicy, with youthfully chewy tannins and lively acidity extending the bright floral berry flavors on the fresh, long finish. Maceration lasts only four-five days and the wine ferments at a maximum temperature of 24-25°C (75.2-77°F). About 10% is aged in new oak, which is specifically used to add a little polish and sweetness, for the Nieddera grape can make very tannic, sturdy red wines. (Vinous)

Additional Information on Attilio Contini Nieddera Igt 2015

Winery: Attilio Contini

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
