Tamlyn Currin of Jancisrobinson.com recently described La Bicoa’s charming 2019 Sterma as ‘Unbelievable elegance, fragrance and finesse. Wonderful stuff at a crazy price. A £40 wine in a £16 bottle (17pts)‘.
Hot off the heels of this outstanding review, this enchanting Nebbiolo d’Alba has now caught the attention of long serving Sunday Times wine columnist Jane Macquitty, naming it as one of her Top Italian red wines for autumn
Punching well above its weight and turning more than a few heads, demand for this wine has understandably been very high. But if you’re reading this, you’re in luck as a brand new shipment has now landed.
2019 Nebbiolo d’Alba, Sterma, La Bioca
Half the price, but not half the flavour, is Sterma’s leafy, spice box fragrant 2019 Nebbiolo d’Alba, once a barolo but now made from old vines, sourced just outside Barolo’s southern border. – Jane Macquitty’s Top Italian red wines for autumn – The Times
