2018 Vino Rosso “Il Goccetto”

Tenuta La Pergola

East of the Langhe, just beyond the provinces of Alessandria and Asti, a cornucopia of native grape varieties grow together to offer the most diverse range of wine styles known to any single region in Italy. Here in Monferrato, at family-owned Tenuta La Pergola, matriarch Alessandra Boda collaborates with us on our second Italian cuvée: the old-school, vino rosso of our dreams named Il Goccetto. The precise blend may vary from one year to the next, but you can always expect a healthy dose of aromatic Brachetto (vinified dry), with juicy Barbera, and a splash of rosy Freisa, or crunchy Croatina. Il Goccetto falls firmly in the light red category, so you’ll want to serve it chilled, perhaps in a glass pitcher, for full trattoria effect.

About Piedmont

map of Piedmont

Kermit’s love affair with the great reds of Piemonte dates back to the early days of his career: the very first container he imported from Italy, in fact, featured legendary 1971 and 1974 Barolos from Vietti and Aldo Conterno. Regular visits since then have seen our portfolio grow to now nine Piemontesi estates, with a strong focus on the rolling hills of the Langhe.

Nebbiolo rules these majestic, vine-covered marl slopes, giving Italy’s most mystifyingly complex, nuanced, and age-worthy reds. When crafted via traditional production methods—long macerations and extensive aging in enormous oak botti—the powerful, yet incredibly refined Barolos and Barbarescos provide haunting aromatics of tar, raspberry, incense, tea, roses, and more. At times austere in their youth but well worth the wait, they pair beautifully with the hearty local cuisine starring veal in many forms, braised beef, pastas like tajarin and agnolotti, and of course, Alba’s famous white truffles.

Surrounded by mountains on three sides, Piemonte’s climate is continental, with baking hot summers and cold winters. Nebbiolo is only part of the story here: juicy, fruity Barberas and Dolcettos represent the bread and butter throughout the region, and other native grapes like Freisa, Croatina, and the white Arneis are also noteworthy. Value abounds in the Monferrato, while Alto Piemonte also has its share of thrills to provide.

Every corner of Piemonte is rich with tradition, especially when wine is concerned. It’s no wonder we have been singing the region’s praises for over forty years.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
