IN STOCK

2009 Superiore Vigna Vigia Bricco Maiolica

Grapes Barbera
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Piedmont
Classification Superiore
ABV 14.5%
Vineyard Vigna Vigia

18 months in oak, 50% new. Bright strong crimson. Sweet, ripe, vanilla-laced red fruit. Oak is quite dominant at the moment, adding its own sweetness. Fresher and more mouthwatering than the Sori Bricco Maiolica. Sweet red cherries. Silky ripe fresh tannins though there's still some grip. And lots of spice on the finish. Well made but lacks some of the energy of the less oaked version. 2012-2015
16.5

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.
