James Suckling 94
"Aromas of dark truffles, dried strawberries and rose stems following through to a full body with round and chewy tannins. A rich finish. This is very structured and tannic. Drink in 2020."~JS
Wine Spectator 91
"Cherry, straw, menthol and iron aromas and flavors mark this taut, linear red. Juicy and balanced, unleashing an energetic finish. Best from 2021 throough 2033. 466 case made."~BS
"First produced in 2004, Le Coste is one of the few single vineyard wines from this cru available in the United States. Only four acres, this vineyard is home to vines over 20 years old that have yields below 1 kg per vine. The microclimate enjoys large amounts of calcerous marl which results in a final wine that distinguishes itself with a clean and vibrant fruit character."
"Intense ruby red with orange reflections. Bouquet of ripe fruit nose of currants and raspberries with hints of violet. Flavor is balanced with silky, sweet tannins, excellent structure and a long finish. Pairs well with red meats, braises and medium to long-aged cheeses made with cow or sheep milk."~Winery Notes
PeccheninoView all from Pecchenino
The Pecchenino family has worked in viticultural for over four generations and made the leap from small wine production to a winery of international recognition under the brothers Orlando and Attilio Pecchenino. Today, Pecchenino consists of 54 acres in Dogliani and an additional seven acres in Monforte. Focused on the production of high-quality Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and a few other select varietals, Pecchenino's vines are painstakingly cared for by hand. In addition to its consistent high quality, Pecchenino distinguishes itself by being the only winery to produce Dolcetto aged in oak, resulting in Dolcetto wines with an aging potential of over 10 years.
