I am not a big wine from Nestarec is a summery white wine. Made from Riesling, Chardonnay and some misterious local grapes, it has a citrusy nose and pineapple notes. Freshness, minerality and the good level of acidity make it the perfect refreshment for hot days!

From Milan:

These last couple of years, people tend to talk about terroir, barrels, batonnage, etc. Big wine is a thing. Not saying it's not important, but when I drink wine with my friends, we just talk about life and have fun. As simple as that. Soil, subsoil, barriques–we couldn't care less.

Every winemaker wants to make a big wine and works hard on it. But, truth be told, most of the wines that have made a mark on me weren't big. They simply had some energy to share with their drinkers. Drunk at the right time, in the right place, and with the right people, which I think is way more important. Most of the really good winemakers that inspire me don't showcase their wine as “big” anyways.

And this wine is my answer to that. I'm happy doing “small“ wines as long as it's fun to make them. Based on wines with the highest zing, usually only a little skin contact, usually old vines.
