An Australian making amazing wines in Barbaresco???!!!!! Yes it’s true Dave Fletcher is making some incredible wines and the right people are taking notice. Antonio Galloni of Vinous Media wrote, “Sometimes it takes an outsider to truly appreciate the gifts and potential of a region. I first met Dave Fletcher, a native of Australia, at Ceretto, where he is the winemaker. A few years ago Fletcher started making wines under his own label at a tiny cellar that was once a train station in the flats of Barbaresco, below Marchesi di Grèsy. The first wines are certainly impressive. In a very short time, by Italian standards, Fletcher has managed to forge some pretty strong relationships that give him access to top-tier fruit. More importantly, Fletcher clearly understands the potential of Piedmont, something not all of the locals do, and he has the ambition, commitment and sheer drive to go after his dreams. That’s pretty impressive stuff in my book.”
To start we’ll bring in Dave’s Barbaresco and Nebbiolo d’Alba and then we’ll see what else we can grab. TINY production – only 2500 BOTTLES of each of these wines were produced!!!!
