Novello wines are new Italian Autumn wines put on the market in the beginning of November. The process of fermentation is reduced significantly, making perfect early market wines to begin the Autumn season.
Italian Novello wines are officially released on the market on November 6th. You may find some slightly earlier (by a week or so) but it is likely to find these only at tastings and festivals as a preview of the Autumn debut. Traditionally these wines are not drunk later than January, so they don’t make the Winter wine list.
Since these wines are not of the aging variety, their life span is quite short and ranges from November to April, so they are exclusively Autumn wines. Don’t try to carry these over into the Winter season.
