The Dezzani Otto Bucce was conceived to celebrate 80 years of Dezzani winemaking. Otto Bucce translates as '8 skins' and refers to the blend of 8 grapes used to make it, with an unconventional mixture of traditional and non-traditional grapes. These are Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Bonarda and Albarossa, which are part of the Piedmont’s winemaking identity, and the international, and not so traditional, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.
A deep crimson colour with damson hues, this wine looks very alluring in the glass. On the nose are complex aromas of stewed strawberry, black cherry and a little blackcurrant, with a touch of vanilla and black pepper. On the palate the wine is a good deal softer that you might expect with a pleasing medium body. Ripe black cherry, raspberry, mulberry and plum fruits sit over a creamy vanilla. There is also a satisfying touch of savoury black olive on the finish.
A very approachable and enjoyable red wine - perfect for chilly winter evenings and the midweek Spag Bol!
