    "Offering a mix of bright cherry, black currant, savory mineral and wild herb aromas and flavors, this is both lively and dense. Strikes a fine balance between all the elements..." ~ James Suckling

    In the mood for an accessable, savory Italian red with loads of ripe, lively fruit? You should try the Renato Ratti Nebbiolo d'Alba Ochetti. We had red wine braised short ribs over creamy Parmesan polenta last night, and it would have been the perfect bottle for them. A big bowl of chicken and Italian sausage paccheri pasta tossed in a garlic and olive oil sauce will do the trick nicely as well. Be sure to have plenty of freshly grated Parmesan on hand. Or, grill a pizza (yes, grill) with radicchio, mozzarella and caramelized onions for easy and delicious. That's really all you need to know winelovers!

    Wine Spectator: "Offering a mix of bright cherry, black currant, savory mineral and wild herb aromas and flavors, this is both lively and dense. Strikes a fine balance between all the elements, ending in a resonant aftertaste. Drink now through 2025. 3,245 cases imported." Mar 2019 (Advance)

    James Suckling: "Shows much more intensity of fruit than most with fruit tea, hibiscus, citrus and raspberry cheesecake, as well as a touch of cloves and vanilla. Medium body, a sturdy frame of firm tannins and a juicy finish. Delicious as always. Drink now." Sep 2018

    Winery:  "Fine, delicate and persistent bouquet with characteristic trace scents of strawberry and raspberry. Pleasantly bitterish, velvety, at once elegant and full.

    Class and spontaneous vivacity are the distinguishing characteristics of this wine. The typical sandy soil gives lots of finesse and a very delicate aromas. Red meats, grilled or on the spit, game, grande cuisine white and red meats with white or brown sauces."
