Bricco Maiolica

Italy, Piedmont

Beppe Accomo is a passionate, young and ambitious viticulturist making wines of excellent quality on his 20 hectare estate making gloriously uncomplicated, yet sophisticated wines that do not require years of bottle age. His Barbera is from old vines which produce tiny bunches of grapes making a wine with concentrated aromas of black cherries, deep colour, and fine rich flavour with hints of chocolate on the finish. Equally successful is the deep purple, ripe morello cherry fruit packed Dolcetto - one of the best from Diano d'Alba by a long stretch. His Nebbiolo is also chock full of raspberry and bilberry fruit with tremendous structure and length making it one of the best simple expressions of Nebbiolo which can be drunk on a regular basis and when relatively young.
