Durin Pornassio Ormeasco 2009

Durin Pornassio Ormeasco 2009

Ormeasco is said to be the same grape as Dolcetto of Piedmont. I grabbed this wine on the way out the door to a casual dinner with my wife. Pleasantly surprised, it was bright, fun, food-friendly…at a cool cellar temperature was perfect with local ethnic food. Compared to more serious Dolcetto from Piedmont, this was much brighter, simpler and elegant…all red fruit and delicious. I’ve been looking more and more to Liguria recently for interesting finds.

The recently established (2003) Pornassio DOC covers the entirety of Liguria. Durin Pornassio Ormeasco comes from the backdrop hills of Ortovero, a town half way between Sanremo and Savona.
