The prize for best imitation of Nebbiolo by a grape no one has ever heard of is awarded to this elegant, sturdy-structured wine made from the profoundly local variety Vespolina, found only in the Alpine foothills of northern Piedmont. By tradition, Vespolina was used by vignerons of the Colline Novaresi as a blending grape to soften Nebbiolo’s hardest edges, but today, winemakers are finding it can be a delight all on its own. With local roots in the fifteenth century, the Arlunno family and the Cantelupo winery are among the oldest winemaking establishments in the region, and the “Villa Horta” cuvee is their celebration of an underrated grape. Aromas of fennel and oregano, white pepper, tart black cherry, orange blossom and a single vanilla bean. On the palate, those red and orange fruits mix with a touch of bay leaf and tar; while the texture arrives silky and leaves behind a pleasant coating of short, sharp tannins. This medium bodied wine should fill in the gaps when you have rich, mushroomy pasta dishes on the table.
