The lighter ruby-hued 2018 Bricco Rosso Centennial Mountain Vineyard offers up a pretty, Nebbiolo-like bouquet of mulled cherries, dried herbs, licorice, and flowers. Beautifully complex and elegant, it's medium-bodied on the palate and has light, silky yet present tannins, a wonderful core of sweet fruit, and a great finish. It's like a Barbaresco mixed with a Red Burgundy. The blend is 50% Nebbiolo, 15% each of Nerello Mascalese, Carignan, and Primitivo, and the final 5% Barbera. I don't think there's anyone in California doing Italian varieties better than Kevin Harvey and his team at Rhys (who are behind the Aeris wines).
