Description

Hailing from the small town of Priocca, home to vines, hazelnut trees, and Nutella, winemaker Renato Vezza is producing exceptional quality wines under his family label, Bricco Ernesto. The family have been custodians of the property for 4 generations - back in the day “Ernesto“ refused to sell the hill because he wanted to leave it to his grandson, hence why the wine is called Bricco Ernesto!

**tasting note of 2016 release**  Priocca, Roero. Nebbiolo. Though, from my experience, it doesn’t quite taste like your typical Roero. Only 180 bottles brought into the country, but still available at retail (I see). Sweet cherry, almond biscuits, mint and pine, a lick of spice. It’s fresh, but powerful, layers of red fruits and almost a creamed honey flavour, dried herb, blood orange and peel, supple powder fine tannin, delicate but warm-hearted, with a finish that rolls on most emphatically. It’s interesting. And different in a good way. Distinctive wine. Very good. 94 points, Gary Walsh, Wine Front
