"Bricco Cichetta" Barbera d'Alba Superiore DOC - Pietro Rinaldi

There is no region in Italy where the territory has been parcelled out with the same care. Piedmont is not only the land of Italy's great reds. It is also the region of the sub-zones, of the bricchi, of the Vigne, each with its own peculiarities. Each with its own unique characteristics. As in this case. Barbera d'Alba yes, but produced only with grapes from a single vineyard, located in Madonna di Como, at the top of a hill, with a 360 degree exposure. Bricco Cichetta is a vineyard more than 50 years old, whose roots lie in a soil rich in calcareous marl and clay that gives life to a wine characterized by a beautiful deep ruby red colour, almost impenetrable with intense purple reflections. A fresh wine, which presents an intensely fruity bouquet, with hints of ripe red fruit and spicy hints of liquorice and vanilla. The palate is warm and powerful, with notes of ripe cherry, berries and minerals. Long and persistent finish. Its natural pairing? It is the one with the great mixed boiled meats in the Piedmontese style or, more generally, the one with the great dishes of Italian cuisine.

Barbaresco and Barolo. Then Nebbiolo, Barbera d'Alba, Arneis and even Moscato. The production of Azienda Agricola Pietro Rinaldi ranges over practically all the good wines of the Langa. A family tradition that has been handed down for four generations, from father to son with the same great passion. There are a total of 10 hectares of vineyards, all hilly, all with very different soils and exposures. And this is why each plot of land is able to give life to something unique, unrepeatable. Today the farm is run by a young and passionate team, always ready to take up the challenges of the new international markets, without losing sight of its deep ties with the territory of origin. This is another reason why Azienda Agricola Pietro Rinaldi has joined the Green Experience group, for the production of sustainable and organic wines.

    This warm vintage presents a complete, round and succulent portrait of this traditional Piedmont-based grape. Barbera loves a warm growing season, and that's what it got here. The Barbera d'Alba Superiore Bricco Cichetta delivers thick layers of blackberry and red currant with rose and dried lavender at the back.
