Borgatta - Lamilla 2016
Aged Dolcetto from a 83-yr old producer. Rustic, complex, showing beautiful development with notes of coffee/ tobacco. Proper stuff. We often call this one our 'baby Barolo.' Made by Emilio Oliveri, who has been working a tiny 2 hectares of land since the 60's with his wife Marisa. Now in his 80's, he is still going strong and still producing some of the best Piemonte wines we have come across in a very long time. These are wines ‘come si faceva una volta,’ a representation of tradition, of old methods, and of pure dedication. Wines infused with the energy of two of the kindest souls one is ever likely to meet.
