Bricco dei Tati Cortese was selected by the Washington Post as a top pick and as a  “recession buster.”

“Treat this terrific little white wine like a red: Don’t chill it too much, then let it open for a half-hour to develop its enticing tropical fruit flavors. It’s dry, but the fruit gives an appealing illusion of sweetness. Great as an aperitif or with light seafood dishes.” Dave McIntyre, Washington Post Wine Columnist, March 2010







Bricco dei Tati Barbera was selected as one of the Washington Post’s “Top Picks.” (June 2009)

“A recession-buster, terrific for the price and noteworthy… with cherry notes and a beautiful balance.” Dave McIntyre, Washington Post, June 2009

In a series on natural wine on the blog saignée (July 2010), and in his top wines of the year (December 2010), Jarred Gild from Western Market in Detroit sang the praises of our Barbera.

Many folks think there’s just ordinary table wine and great wine (read: expensive), and they totally miss out on how good a simple, inexpensive when can be when made on a farm by people that love wine, rather than chemists, engineers, and marketers looking for the next gimmick or trend to get you to buy their bland, insipid, swill. This wine is emblematic of the “real wine” that we strive so hard to find, and solid proof that it need not be expensive.



“Made  from 80 year old vines, the 2007 Bricco Dei Tati Dolcetto is a fantastic value. This is a red-fruited Dolcetto with a gorgeous nose featuring aromas of summer flowers, Bing cherries and red plums. In the mouth, the wine is energetic, and fresh with plum and tart red cherry fruit lifted by bright, blood orange acidity. As the wine opens, the fruit just keeps getting fresher and redder. The finish is clean with pretty light tannins. this will be versatile at table and pair well with pasta, stews, risotto, and lighter meats. A fine value that outshines most $30 Dolcetto!” -From (now Chain Bridge Cellars)
