Monsecco was a very well established and historic producer in Piedmont for most of the 20th century, but for a myriad of reasons went under in the late 1970’s and ‘80’s. In 1993 a local winemaking family, the Zanettos, purchased some of the vineyards and revived the label. They have been producing excellent versions of Gattinara, Ghemme and Sizzano among others ever since.

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Here, the grand Nebbiolo takes center stage, a wine made exclusively from this noble grape and harvested from vineyards outside of the Gattinara and Ghemme delimited zones but still in hillside sites on the slopes above and around the towns on the eastern shore of the Sesia river. Manual harvest occurs normally during the second half of October. The Zanetta family gives this wine a shorter maceration than it applies to the Gattinara but then the wine is aged in large (15 hectoliter) “botte” for two years before bottling and then left to age an additional year before being released to the market. It is a fine and elegant wine with subtle tannins, bright cherry flavors and a persistent finish that again emphasizes the complex mineral composition of the underlying soils.
