Product Description:

100% Albarossa, an amazing red grape created from the union of Barbera and Nebbiolo. The grape was conceived in 1938 by Professor Dalmasso during some experiments with the typical Piedmontese varietals to create a grape varietal which united Nebbiolo’s elegance and color with the freshness and drinkability of Barbera. Over the past decade, since the recognition of its own Controlled Origin Denomination (DOC), Albarossa has become more widespread and recognized as a varietal in its own right. Bricco dei Guazzi is one among few wineries that produce this unusual wine.

Bricco dei Guazzi Albarossa is a deep, almost impenetrable, ruby red. Warm and embracing on the nose with intense aromas of red berries, mixed with aromas of toasted coffee and of leather. Round and full-bodied on the palate, a great concentration of fruitiness bolstered by a tannic profile. Pleasantly fresh and tasty. Pairs well with charcuterie, boiled meat, stews, roasts, and ripe cheeses.
