BRICCO ERNESTO ROERO NEBBIOLO 2018
GARNET PURE FINE
CLASSIC / BIODYNAMIC / 750ML
A tiny producer based in the Roero Hills. The producer Renato Vezza sharpened his palette as a globe-trotting Somm before taking over the family farm. His wines are delicate and pure with glossy tannins surrounded by rose water, licorice and a touch of leather.
Sourced from the Republica: In France they call them "vin de garage" because they are produced in tiny cellars and in tiny quantities.They are often oenological masterpieces. As in the case of the Bricco Ernesto Red Wine which are born in the Roero hills, Priocca. The wines don't have a DOC or DOCG certification by choice of Renato Vezza the producer (Ernesto was the grandfather). Vezza was a sommelier in London in Marc Pierre White's restaurant, then in Canada and Australia. Back in Priocca he took over the family business, certified biodynamic, which had been producing grapes for 4 generations. But they had been sold, until Renato started making them. Di Rosso, (a wine that rivals Barolo), is made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, only 1000 bottles are produced annually.
