2015 Dolcetto d'Alba "Brichet" (Terrabianca)

Terrabianca, Dolcetto d'Alba “Brichet", Piemonte, Italy 2015

100% Dolcetto

WILD BERRY, PLUM GIVING WAY TO PRUNE, HEADY HERBS

Here we have a another delicious Dolcetto from Terrabianca, albeit a richer and more full-bodied example than one typically finds. This is a vivacious and approachable wine, but with added depth, length, and maturity thanks to fruit from 70-90 year old vines that grow on the sunniest part of the hill. In fact, the name "Brichet" derives from Bricco, which relates to the most advantageously sunny part of a hillside vineyard. Abounding with fresh red and black fruit, and tempered by herbal notes that speak more of wilderness than backyard garden. Less than 175 cases produced.

Serving Suggestion: "Red Sauce" Italian-American food. Eggplant parmesan, Shrimp Fra Diavolo, Spaghetti alla Vongole, pebbled glass candle holders, red and white checked tablecloth.
