Kermit Lynch T-Shirts Now Available
Many years ago when visiting La Pergola to blend our Monferrato Rosso, we would sometimes end the tasting with their sweet, sparkling Brachetto called Birbèt. I always marveled at its incredible floral aromas and wondered what Brachetto would be like vinified as a dry red. Well, we found out. Now, when the stars align in certain years, we are able to bring you this “little nip,” a light-bodied, fragrant red wine that is fun and unpretentious and, most important, delicious.
|Blend:||75% Brachetto, 25% Barbera|
|Producer:||Kermit Lynch Blends - Italy|
|Vineyard:||15 years, 6.5 ha|
|Aging:||Wine is aged in stainless steel for 6 months|
I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
