Soft chocolate and supple berry aromas round off the sharpness you sometimes encounter in the most austere expressions of Piemontese winemaking. Socré (a newcomer winery) delivers a pleasantly plush and luscious Barbaresco with a velvety texture and a yielding personality. The wine is ready now and will appeal to New World tastes.
Enhanced by notes of oak spice and toast, this vineyard-designate offering bears aromas of sweet vanilla, cinnamon and bright cherry. It is smooth and silky, but firmly structured on the long finish.
This is a luscious and succulent Barbera d’Alba with ripe fruit aromas followed by chocolate, spice and leather. The wine shows sophistication and character and ends with a smooth, silky and slightly sweet close.
Here’s a fun and slightly less formal expression of Nebbiolo (especially when compared to the great wines of Barbaresco and Barolo) that offers tight fruit nuances of white cherry and forest berry backed by light shadings of spice and smoke.
