A gloriously fruity and fun red blend of Pinot Noir, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Barbera, aged v briefly in oak to retain its vibrant and fresh flavours. Juicy and nimble, with sour cherries and just the right level of tannin, think of this a vin de soif, with just a touch more va-va-voom and Italian soul.
In Piedmont, Gian Luca Colombo is the guy that everyone talks about. The architect of the neo-classical style of Barolo focusing on wines with real finesse: silky, elegant, perfumed, fine fruit, with gentler tannins, less wood and extraction, Colombo is the guy that everyone wants advice from. He won the Gambelli award for best young winemaker in Italy, and he works alongside a winemaker who is a consultant in Barbaresco, who makes the wine at esteemed Bruno Giacosa. They taste together, and talk together. The point is here is, that anything exciting happening in Barolo and Barbaresco, Gian Luca is probably aware of, and likely to be involved with. Gian Luca has a very small production of his own, and we are thrilled to have our hands on these wines.
