Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Rich and elegant, the Terra d’Oro 2015 Bricco Red presents inviting aromas of black cherry, blueberry, cedar, anise, lavendar and Herbes de Provence with underlying tones of cocoa, earth, vanilla and pastry dough. On the palate, this wine showcases a generous entry of ripe plums before building to a dense core and a refined finish with velvety tannins. This red blend is a nod to traditional Italian winemaking with a modern twist.
Vineyard Notes
In Italy, the finest vineyards are located on hilltops. These hilltops are known as Bricco and they produce the region’s best fruit. Here at Terra d’Oro, we have created a limited-release Bricco blend of our own with fruit sourced from our finest vineyards throughout Amador County. Made up of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache, all three varietals included in this blend thrive in the thin, well-draining, rocky soils in the Shenandoah Valley along oak dotted hillsides.
Winemaker Notes
After being hand-harvested at night in the cool, early morning hours, the fruit is collected in a combination of half-ton bins that are hand-punched down into stainless steel tanks, allowing the winemaking process to have more control over fermentation. After the fermentation process is complete, the wine is aged for 24 months in French and American oak barrels (40% new) before it is ready for release to our club members.
Food Pairing Notes
It is recommended to pair this wine with marinated lamb kebobs, a zesty quinoa salad, or delicious baked ziti.
Production
The driver of this wine is the Syrah and Petite Sirah. Both varieties have a tendency for big structure, and as a result, this wine spends longer time in barrel to allow the tannins to soften resulting in a beautiful wine that drinks beautifully now and will continue to age and develop.
