Bricco dei Tati is a family run estate in the heart of the Langhe region of Italy’s Piemonte. It takes up little more than 3 acres on a hillside across the valley from the village of Barbaresco. While much of the surrounding region produces the big Nebbiolo wines the Langhe is renowned for, the immediate area lies at more than 400 meters above sea level, and is more appropriate for Moscato and Dolcetto.
The farm house, considered “new” by Italian standards, was built in the early 1800’s and some of the vines in the vineyard are almost as old.
The cantina and cellar are dug out of the hill directly under the house.
The 2015 Tati Dolcetto comes from from 80 year-old vines on the southwest side of the hill, managed and cultivated fully sustainable for the last fifty years. Bottled unfiltered and unfined, so some sediment should be expected.
Aged in used barrique for 8-12 months. Only 3400 bottles made.
