Wine Geek Recommended
Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
This special cuvée is harvested from older vines within the “cru” of Loreto in the confines of the village of Barbaresco. The primary fermentation occurs in stainless steel for a 10 day period; then, the wine is racked into oak “botti” to age for a year prior to bottling. This is a particularly robust wine that shows a complexity rare to find in Dolcetto. One finds the flavors and aromas of earth mingled with wild berries and compelling presence of grainy, dusty and sweet tannin. 300 cases of this cuvée annually.
Piedmont is the most "Frenchified" of all Italian wine regions. The long valleys of the Alpine foothills lead to easier travel to France's southern coast and inland than to the rest of Italy. It is perhaps for this reason that the Piedmontese have long practiced the most refined wine traditions of any Italian region. Terroir-based wisdom trickled down from early French masters (monks, typically) to this area.
Known mostly for their reds (but producing some excellent whites,) from the early ripening Dolcetto grape to the lofty, deep reds of Barolo and Barbaresco crafted from the Nebbiolo grape, these wines are clearly crafted using centuries of terroir-based winemaking.
