Ever heard of a "serious" Grignolino? We thought we didn't either, but this wine has definitely proved us wrong. There's lots of history behind this wine, too much to get into right now (we promise we'll post more about it soon), but this is a Grignolino that's on par with the excellence Barolo is normally known for. Tight now, but just decant for about an hour, or cellar for a couple years and this will blossom into something miraculous.
The 2015 Grignolino Bricco del Bosco Vigne Vecchie is one of the more intriguing wines of Piedmont. The 2015 offers an unusual combination of size and fully mature flavors like cedar, tobacco, worn-in leather and dried cherry. Perhaps the 2015 will find better balance with more time in bottle; today, it is a bit awkward.
Piemontese wines. Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.
But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.
Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
