Seriously, some wines just transcend all the nonsense. The Bricco delle Ciliegie ‘Le Rive’ is one of those rare viticultural masterpieces – where the winemaker’s job is really to just not screw up what nature’s provided in this very special vineyard. Domenico Almondo who learned from the best in his father, Giovanni, has taken that stewardship to unheard of levels.
For the ‘gold label’ micro-cuvee of Bricco delle Ciliegie only the vineyard’s single oldest patch is used for the grapes. They use just the first half of the juice from the press in this very special bottling (the rest sold off). If you ever wanted a secret touch to the nose as your hint, here you are.
Usually this cuvee sells out to the restaurant glitterati within days of its once-a-year arrival. This year, I got a measly 150 bottles that I’m offering up to previous Almondo buyers ONLY.
