Mossio: the magnificence of Dolcetto d'Alba, Barbera and Nebbiolo of Langhe
Perugia, Italy
Thursday, May 21st, 2015
Seven years later DiWineTaste readers meet again wines of Mossio brothers, prestigious winery from Rodello, in the municipality of Alba, committed to the cultivation of Dolcetto grape and wines of Langa. The commitment for Dolcetto of Mossio winery - today run by cousins Valerio and Remo - allowed them to reach levels of primary interest, while bringing the famous Piedmontese grape to the highest wine making achievements. Not only Dolcetto, in the vineyards of the winery of Rodello are also cultivated Barbera and Nebbiolo, the other two glories of Piedmontese viticulture, achieving with these noble varieties results of extraordinary quality, something proved - in particular - by Langhe Nebbiolo and Langhe Rosso. To the event took part Valerio Mossio, who talked about the development and new wines introduced, in the course of the last seven years, in his winery. An event particularly dedicated to Dolcetto and its many interpretations that, in Mossio winery, express excellence and diversity of styles of the best quality. The event started with Dolcetto d'Alba Piano delli Perdoni 2013, a wine of remarkable pleasingness and making, capable of expressing in the glass the typical personality of the Piedmontese variety. It is the the turn of Dolcetto d'Alba Bricco Caramelli 2013 - awarded also in this vintage with DiWineTaste Five Diamonds - vinified, like the previous wine, in steel tanks, bringing Dolcetto to the highest positions of Italian wine making. Flagship wine of Mossio brothers, Bricco Caramelli - a noble vineyard planted seventy years ago - expresses in fact extraordinary finesse and elegance as well as a remarkable structure and a finish of very long persistence. The third wine of the event brings to the glasses a new interpretation of this grape - Dolcetto d'Alba Superiore Gamus 2012 - which, as opposed to the previous wines, provides for the aging in cask, characteristic giving Dolcetto a fuller body and roundness, while keeping its primary character. The fourth wine of the event was Langhe Rosso 2012 - made with Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto grapes - aged in cask, expresses the blending of the main red berried varieties of Piedmont, with a pleasing crispness, well balanced by a charming roundness. The event continued with Langhe Nebbiolo 2010, a wine fully expressing the greatness and power of the famous red Piedmontese grape, however keeping its typical elegance and finesse. The event ended with a rare wine - Le Margherite 2011 - obtained from dried Dolcetto grape and aged in barrique, among the very few cases of a sweet wine produced with this grape, a magnificent interpretation kept in perfect balance between sweetness and crispness as well as moderate astringency. The event has been conducted by Antonello Biancalana - DiWineTaste chief editor - who also led the sensorial tasting of wines as well as creating the dishes paired to the Mossio wines.
