Bottle size and vintage
The challenge which Ermanno Accornero set himself when he decided to showcase all the grandeur of the Grignolino del Monferrato Casalese denomination is today a proven success. Bricco del Bosco is a clear example of what can be achieved with the rare Grignolino variety, enhanced here by the exceptional merits of a unique terroir.
The Grignolino is interpreted in different ways by the Accornero winery, which plays around with different periods of ageing and a variety of containers so as to highlight in this way its great versatility.
Offering incredible value for money, Bricco del Bosco appears a lovely ruby colour and reveals an aromatic and perfumed nose. On the palate it comes over as slightly tannic, fresh and with a very elegant fineness. Since 1980 Bricco del Bosco has been enabling us to appreciate the Grignolino's profile, as few have done, thanks to its single varietal composition and a production process carried out in steel tanks in order to preserve all its fragrance.

Old favourite impossible to find in England
Grignolino is a wine in danger of disappearing even in its native Italy. A red wine that is difficult to produce, for an ever dwindling market. The winemaker has to walk a tightrope between colour or acidity, full colour too acidic, reduce acidity wine becomes too pallid (think Rose'). Monferrato Grignolino must give off orange hilights, reflecting the iron in the hills. Accornero's did everything right. I just needed more than the 5 bottles in stock
