At a Glance

Bright and plummy fruit, with plenty of acidity and spice. Grown organically on a stunning sun-facing vineyard in Piedmont by the Cordero family. Drink with a huge bowl of pasta, rich tomato sauce and lashings of grated parmesan.

The grapes are grown here
 
Supple, bright, expressive wine with spicy black fruits over damson and plums. Lovely acidity and a bit of bite ... Vibrant juicy fruit and lovely grippiness. 91/100

In Depth

Giovanni Cordero and his three sons run a family business growing organic Barbera, Nebbiolo and Dolcetto just outside of Priocca, as well as raising cattle for home-cured salami. The grapes for this wine come from a south-facing vineyard, which allows them to soak up plenty of sun. In the winery, the grapes were gently hand-sorted then cold-soaked for two days prior to fermentation, to extract tannin and colour. Aged in a mixture of stainless steel for freshness, and oak for texture and complexity.
