Dolcetto has an intense, purplish ruby-red colour, and a winey, fruity nose with a full, rich flavour and a slightly bitterish aftertaste.
Its perfect tannin and acid content make it ready for drinking in the spring following the harvest
Dolcetto is the typical wine du terroir of Piedmont. Made from the grapes of the same name, Dolcetto is cultivated throughout the Langhe hills around Alba, in the province of Cuneo.
|Wine maker notes
|This wine’s area of production extends over the hills around Alba, to the right of the river Tanaro.
The grapes are crushed on the same day on which they are harvested, and they remain in contact with the skins for 8/10 days.
The wine does not undergo any ageing process, so the fragrance of its typical aroma is kept intact.
