2019 Fletcher, Barbaresco 'Recta Pete', Piedmont, Italy
This wine is a take on the tradition of blending vineyards that the region was once famous for. It is a wine built to express the best of the region, in the sense that sourcing fruit from several vineyards allows for the art of blending to come into action. Should one vineyard not perform to its best in a particular vintage, it will not be included in the blend. Each vineyard adds to the different layers of the wine and enhances its complexity. This wine is open fermented using natural yeasts. It is macerated for 2 weeks post sugar dryness and then put into 300L old French oak barriques. It is aged in oak for a period of 2 years before bottling without fining or filtration and with low sulphur addition.
