Fabio Zambolin, Feldo Vino Rosso
Brand Fat Cat Wines & Spirits
A classic field blend from the sandy, morainic, low pH soils of Lessona. This non-vintage Alto Piemonte Vino Rosso is made entirely from the 2014 vintage. A blend of 1/3rd old vines Nebbiolo (60-70 year old), 1/3rd Croatina and 1/3rd Vespolina from vineyards surrounding Fabio Zambolin’s house. While the grapes come entirely from Lessona, Fabio’s winery and home straddles the border, and the facility is officially in the commune of Cossato, thus the Vino Rosso designation. The grapes are destemmed and allowed to ferment spontaneously in stainless steel tanks for 20 days after which the wine is moved to used barrique for eight months. Malolactic fermentation occurs in the spring. This is a dark and powerful Alto Piemonte red with brambly red fruits on the nose, a structured, somewhat rustic palate, and fine tannins. Only 800 bottles produced.
