DOLCETTO DI DIANO D'ALBA
2019 Bricco Maiolica
Diano d' alba is famed for it's Dolcetto and is said to produce some of the best examples in the whole of Piedmont. Beppe Accomasso's style is for wines with a ripe fruitiness and real drinkability. This is another cracking example with cherry, raspberry and cocoa powder aromas and flavours. A lovely bite of tannin adds shape in the mouth and you get that tang of acidity, but really it is about the berried fruitiness and delicate mocha tones that keep you going back for more. Drinking range: 2021 - 2023 L&S (Jan 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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.
