Tenuta Monolo Bramaterra
Riservas 2001 & 1996

Bramaterra, a small appellation in the north of Piedmont, received DOC status in 1979 thanks to the tireless effort of Umberto Gilodi, the owner of Tenuta Monolo. Because of his role in creating the DOC, he decided to never sell his wine to avoid any conflict of interest. Now after his passing, several vintages of this legendary Piedmont red are available directly from Italy. These two excellent vintages were among our favorites, powerful in personality yet elegant in presentation.  

The 2001 is remarkably youthful tasting with still grippy tannins, licorice peppery spice and robust red cherry fruit. $51.99

The 1996 is just hitting its stride with rosy savory aromatics and dusty cherry fruit that shades from darker to bright. $44.99

All farming was organic (uncommon in the area for many years) and fermentation was in large wooden botti with native yeasts. The vineyards were a mix of 60% Nebbiolo, 20% Croatina, 10% Vespolina, and 10% Uva Rara. For fans of Piedmont or aged old world reds in general, this is an amazing opportunity to taste history.
