2015 Pecchenino Dolcetto Siri D'Jermu Piemonte Superiore

SKU #1350181 94 points Vinous

 Smoke, crème de cassis, plum, licorice, menthol, wild flowers and incense infuse the 2015 Dogliani Superiore Sirì d'Jermu. A gorgeous, beautifully layered wine, the 2015 is sumptuous and racy, but not at all overdone. There is no shortage of richness in this superb and super-expressive Dogliani from the Pecchenino brothers. (AG)  (6/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Though laced with pure raspberry, black cherry and boysenberry flavors, the fruit is hiding behind the firm structure. The tannins are austere now, but this has concentrated fruit and a mineral element on the finish. Opens up with air, so decant or cellar short-term. (BS)  (11/2017)

91 points James Suckling

 A very bright, fruit-focused style with flavors of blackberries and cassis set amid sweet, supple tannins. Plenty to like here. Drink or hold.  (6/2018)

Pecchenino is one of the top estates in the Dogliani zone where nearly all of the vineyards are planted to Dolcetto. This native grape thrives in this slightly higher altitude area adjacent to Barolo and Barbaresco. "Siri d'Jermu" is a densely packed Dolcetto with dark berry and cherry fruit flavors that envelope big ripe tannins and a fair amount of acidity. Although a few months of aging in large casks has toned the wine and made it somewhat accessible now, it definitely opens with ample aeration and is at its best with food. An impressive Dolcetto.

Additional Information:



- How could you not love a great with a name that means "little sweet one?" But don't let that deceive you. This varietal, grown in Italy's Piedmont, may be a low-acid, fruit-forward red, but it can also have significant tannic structure, particularly those from the Dogliani DOC. Traditionally vinified dry, wines made from Dolcetto tend to have a sweet edge to them, with ripe red fruit flavors and perfumed bouquets. According to the Oxford Companion to Wine, many producers have learned to manage its tannic edge with shorter fermentation. There are a total of seven DOCs that produce Dolcetto: Dolcetto d'Aqui, Dolcetto d'Asti, Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba, Dolcetto delle Langhe Monregalesi, Dolcetto di Dolgiani, Dolcetto di Ovada and Dolcetto d'Alba. Dolcetto is also grown in the Italy's Liguria where it is called Ormeasco.


- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.


- Piedmont is in the Northwestern region of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland. Piedmont is predominantly a plain where the water flows from the Swiss and French Alps to form the headwaters of the Po river. The major wine producing areas are in the southern portion of the region in the hills known as the "Langhe". Here the people speak a dialect that is 1/3 French and 2/3 Italian that portrays their historical roots. Their cuisine is one of the most creative and interesting in Italy. Nebbiolo is the King grape here, producing Barolo and Barbaresco. In addition, the Barbera and Dolcetto are the workhorse grapes that produce the largest quantity of wine. Piedmont is predominantly a red wine producing area. There are a few whites made in Piedmont, and the Moscato grape produces a large volume of sweet, semi-sweet and sparkling wines as well.
