Tasting notes
Very intense, deep ruby red, with the purple reflections typical of young Dolcetto; the bouquet surprises with exceptional elegance and ideal interplay of Nebbiolo and Dolcetto (the former’s finesse, the latter’s volume): a chorus where Nebbiolo gives the peak performance and Dolcetto the background. Spicy and/or vinous notes characteristic of the two varieties, mellowed by aging. Very rich but non-aggressive, an all-around food wine for special occasions and complex, structured dishes. Blends famously include some of the world’s most prestigious wines: our Bricco may well be the most historic and authentically Italian interpretation. Serve at 17/19° C., in an ample glass.

Wine maker notes
The two varieties are vinified separately, as maturation takes place at different times: the two wines are assembled and then undergo élevage in oak. Maceration is approximately 5/8 days for Dolcetto and about 10/12 days for Nebbiolo, at a maximum temperature of respectively 25° C. and 30° C. The sojourn in oak barrels – Slavonian and French, partly renewed each year – lasts 12 to 18 months, depending on vintage. The wine is successively racked into stainless steel, clarified with fresh, whipped egg white, decanted and bottled without filtering.
