Very intense, deep ruby red, with the purple reflections typical of youngDolcetto; 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.

Very intense, deep ruby-red in colour, with the purplish nuances typical of Dolcetto; its aroma is surprising in its overall elegance, a perfect blending of Nebbiolo and Dolcetto (Nebbiolo’s subtlety, Dolcetto’s volume) into a chorus in which the former sings the high notes and the latter provides the bass line in a repertoire featuring the spicy and/or winy notes typical of both grapes, which maturity brings into harmony. An extremely rich, yet not aggressive wine, ideal for drinking throughout the whole meal on occasions that call for a superior wine never over-awed by gourmet dishes. It is common knowledge that blending in the cellar produces some of the world’s finest wines, and our Bricco is perhaps Italy’s oldest and most authentic example. Serving temperature: 13-14°C – serve in a capacious 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.
Alcohol: 12.5-13 % by vol.
Total acidity: 5-5.5 grams per liter of tartaric acid
Dry extract: 27-29 grams per liter
