The vinification procedure for Dolcetto d'Alba Dei Grassi involves fermentation for 5-6 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with daily pumping over. After malolactic fermentation, the wine stays in stainless steel until bottling in April-May. We recommend you drink this wine in the first 4-5 years after the vintage to enjoy the fragrance of its aromas and its refreshing drinkability.
"Offers depth, with a chocolate accent to the black cherry and black currant flavors. The dusty tannins are balanced by sweet fruit as the aftertaste picks up mineral notes. Drink now through 2014."
"The 2009 Dolcetto d’Alba "Dei Grassi" is a gorgeous, mid-weight wine laced with varietal dark fruit, tar and licorice. There is an interplay of classic Dolcetto aromas and flavors with the textural finesse of contemporary winemaking I find particularly appealing. This isn’t a blockbuster Dolcetto, rather it is a wine that relies on finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013. "
