2014 Dolcetto d'Alba "Brichet" 1.5L (Terrabianca)
Terrabianca, Dolcetto d'Alba “Brichet" 1.5 Liter, Piemonte, Italy 2014100% 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. It's a magnum - the equivalent of two bottles! Serving Suggestion: "Red sauce" Italian-American food. Eggplant parmesan, shrimp fra diavolo, spaghetti alle ongole, pebbled glass candle holders, red & white checked tablecloth.
