TOP RED-GRAPE ITALIAN WINE VARIETIES PRESENTED BY DARIO BOGNI

Dario Bogni starts with presenting the unforgettable Brunello. It is aged for five years or more, for a darker hue and rich notes of leather, espresso and herbs layered atop sweet, juicy fruit. To experience the wine at its best, opt for an intense and full-bodied bottle which maturation reached 30 months in French and Slavonian oak. Lock this one in the cellar and hide the key for decades. Barbera is another most planted red grape variety in the northwestern region of Italy known as Piedmont, specifies Bogni Dario. The dark-skinned grape generally produces superior wines with lower tannin and higher acidity. Barbera might account for almost half of all Piedmont grapes, but the greatest, most prestigious fruit found in the region is Nebbiolo. Last but not the least, Dario Bogni says Nebbiolo is much more delicate and lighter in color than many of its Italian counterparts, which should excite fans of cool-climate pinot noir.
