2018 Giovanni Almondo, Roero, Bric Valdiana 6x75cl

VM92
The Almondo family have been in Piedmont for the past 600 years, yet their foray into winemaking only dates to 1980 when Domenico came up with an ambitious plan to create top quality wine from their... family vineyard. The result is superb, and the Roero Bric is a Nebbiolo-based red cuvée that will age beautifully and represents a stunning value alternative to the more famous names across the Tanaro river, Barbaresco or Barolo. The 2021 exhibits tell-tale floral and sweet yet crunchy red cherry aromatics, with hints of peppery spice. Lovely mouthfill and power, this is very pleasant now and will improve for the next 5 to 7 years. (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2021 Bruno Giacosa, Roero, Arneis 6x75cl

JR17
A delightful simplicity here that also preserves a great inner freshness and complexity. Tropical fruit perfumes with flavours of papaya, citrus and Williams pear. There's also an inner richness that... has good fruit weight and concentration. Expect mineral tones to rise to more prominence over the next year or so. Hard to imagine a white varietal more perfectly suited for the table - we should all be drinking more Arneis!
