I think sometimes it’s the feeling of running into an old friend that we look for when we open a bottle of wine. When Nick and I tasted 2010 Fletcher Barbaresco, a wine that I had never tasted previously, I ran into an old friend, and oh was it a pleasure!

Of the 200 cases of 2010 Fletcher Barbaresco that were produced, Georgia received twenty 6 packs; of those twenty 6 packs, we scooped up the lot! (Because, let’s face it, we have a hard time letting newfound old friends go)!

Background:

In some instances, it’s the outsider for whom everyone has the least expectation who then goes on to impress the locals, and eventually the world. Take Aussi winemaker David Fletcher who traveled hither and yon… who drank in and worked the vineyards of Sonoma, Burgundy, Napa, Adelaide, McLaren Vale, and finally Piedmont where he found his true love, Nebbiolo; now, he makes it!  The 2010 ‘Recta Pete’ is made from 50% Treiso (one of the cooler areas of Barbaresco) and 50% Barbaresco commune. Nebbiolo vines grow in sandy, clay soil and experience ample sunshine due to direct Southern exposure.

Tasting Notes:

A perfectly poised Nebbiolo with beautiful structure, tempting tannins, and a vibrancy that can only be found in Barbaresco, the expressive fruit is so drinkable now, but there’s no doubt this one will blossom with age. Its ability to show off the Piedmontese terroir is undeniable, and I have a feeling it will be showing off its terroir for a good, long while! Lilly and violets and anise are on the nose followed by an articulate palate of bing cherry, hints of tobacco leaf, and spice. Complex, yet understandable, this one is an unforgettable old friend!

Highlights:

  • Micro Production – only 200 cases produced in total

  • 14.5% Alcohol (leans toward a New World Style)

  • Aged in French barrique  (only 20% new) for 30 months

  • Specifically from Cuneo province of Piedmont, also known as Provincia Granda because it’s the third largest province in the country.
