CLENDENEN FAMILY 2017 “The Pip” Nebbiolo
“Bien Nacido Vineyard”
Santa Maria Valley, California
*This cuvee is named in homage to Jim Clendenen’s deceased, amazing Border Collie “Pip”, former winery mascot.
Typically this bottling is composed of declassified barrels from “Bricco Buon Natale” Nebbiolo, but due to this bottlings popularity, the winery has sought out an additional source to be able to have more continuity. The 2017 vintage is 100% Nebbiolo sourced from the Rancho Sisquoc vineyard located in the Santa Maria Valley (previously a prime vineyard source for Palmina).
Aged 3 years in neutral 500L Hungarian oak puncheons.
