This wine is the result of Beppe Accomo’s obstinate passion for experimentation: he planted this great Burgundy species of vine right at the top of the Bricco Maiolica vineyard. The body and the character of this long-lived wine are surprising as well as its round yet delicate flavour. Its rich body suggests the propensity to ageing in the cellar. It matures slowly: after 3 years (2 of which in barrels) it is still very young. The first crop of grapes was harvested in 1995. It’s perfect with the traditional first courses of Langhe and roasts. It is equally excellent with great international dishes such as terrines, pâtés, soufflés, fondues and fish with tomatoes and olives. Best served at 18°C in burgundy glasses to appreciate its elegance and its refinement.
