Clendenen Family Vineyards Nebbiolo ‘Bricco Buon Natale’


Jim Clendenen was famous for producing internationally acclaimed Pinot Noir & Chardonnay in California. Amongst the region’s top producers, the wines he started producing in 1982 set the standard for modern, terroir-driven Californian wine from Burgundian grapes. Wines under the Clendenden Family Vineyards label are not just another label – this was a project of passion for Jim. These are artisan, nuanced wines from small lots producing distinctive wines that have had the luxury to be in the barrel as long as they need it. Long-lived, food-friendly, with firm acidity and moderate alcohol, they are really special parts of Jim’s story that we are honoured to import and represent in the UK.

Jim was a huge fan of Piedmont and the Nebbiolo grape which was not being experimented with in California. All CFV Nebbiolo is grown in a tiny 1.63-acre section of Bien Nacido vineyard which produces a small, world-class intense crop. This wine is kept in 500-litre Hungarian Oak barrels for 4 years. This is the 7th release of this wine, showing the maturity of the vines with increasing depth and power.

The wine has a mix of floral and berry elements jumping out of the glass. The palate is concentrated and focused; dried cherries, red fruit, black tea, violets, lavender and star anise. Try with Piedmont classics such as ragus, pasta, duck and truffles. Supple and an outstanding wine that really feels European.
