Grapes of Piedmont

3pk "Collector Kit" (1 bottle each of)
2018 Domenico Clerico, Dolcetto d'Alba"Visadi"
2016 Roberto Voerzio, Barbera d'Alba "Il Cerreto"
2018 Sottimano, Nebbiolo

The three main red grapes of Piedmont fit (conveniently) together like pieces of puzzle.  Barbera and Dolcetto make the more readily accessible, “fun” wines, the ones to drink while the more tannic Nebbiolo ages.  Each of the three has characteristics that the other two lack, allowing for a variety of balanced and intriguing blends (under the “Langhe Rosso” denomination).  In Dolcetto you get soft tannins and plump, grapey fruit.  In barbera, you get bright acidity and a more sour, spicy red fruit character.  And in nebbiolo, you get tar and leather and spices.  Where Dolcetto and Barbera are ripe and ready, Nebbiolo is more about complexities revealed over time.
