Houlberg, Bric Bissarello 2020

Ulrik Houlberg Iversen (see more about the author) about the first vintage of our Dolcetto based red blend:
Bric🔸Bissarello 2020: «In terms of aroma, the wine is – quite surprisingly – much lighter than expected, has a wildly surprisingly complex and exciting aroma of an otherwise slightly rural grape, which often produces slightly boring wines. This one is definitely not, because there are cherries, kirsch, strawberries, dried roses and flowers, light licorice and vanilla. The barrel sweetness rounds off the bouquet really well.
However, the taste is lighter, loaded with some watery cherries, juicy strawberries, raspberries, dry and fine-grained tannins, a really good acidity. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted Dolcetto with such ease, which really suits the otherwise easy going grape. It is furiously fine and elegant Dolcetto, so Houlberg is happy. 93 points».

And here are the two other wines: 🔸Jeff Pramas Langhe DOC Nebbiolo 2020, 93/100 🔸MX Quila Piemonte DOC Rosso 2020, 95/100
