Wine of the Month – Åsa’s Pick: Dolcetto d’Alba, Bric Trifula 2009, Cascina Luisin

Dolcetto d’Alba, Bric Trifula 2009, Cascina Luisin

This is an elegant food wine at a very reasonable budget: Dolcetto d’Alba from the excellent winery Cascina Luisin in Barbaresco in Piemonte. Roberto, the son and also the current winemaker, talks about his wines as if they were persons. We’ll do as he does.

If Bric Trifula had been a person he/she would be calm but elegant, someone who did not really feel any need to brag and talk loudly; instead someone who’s individual and surprising in a quite positive way, especially if you give him a little time to get to know her better. With just a touch of perfume. Qualities that make you want to meet again. Goes excellent with a meal of pasta, even or quite fat food. Costing around 7 euro. They don’t have a web site but here’s the email and contact details: Cascina Luisin. Strada Rabajà, 34 – 12050 Barbaresco, (CN) ph. 0039 (0)173 635154, fax 0039 (0) 173 635154. Email: cascinaluisin (at)
