Sizzano (Monsecco) 2013

Posted on Posted in Articles, Monsecco, Occasional Thoughts

Sitting on the deck on a lovely summer’s eve finishing a bottle of Sizzano 2013 from MONSECCO after polishing off a pizza fresh out of the oven topped with pickings from the garden. What a joy this unpretentious wine is! Aromatically compelling with the classic scents of Nebbiolo … the earthy compost underlies the faded, macerated red cherry … then the wine plays notes of vibrant spice from Vespolina and Croatina, this exubérant and playful wine lights up the table. Again, we have a brilliant example of the multi-faceted spectrum of delights that the Alto Piemonte provides.
