Winemaker's Notes

Like the Barbera, Rocca's Dolcetto is vinified and aged exclusively in stainless steel. His vines, grown in Barbaresco, were planted in 1985.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Dolcetto d’Alba Vignalunga is terrific. It is a typical wine for the year, long in aromatics and structure, but less obvious in its fruit than some past vintages. Tar, smoke, licorice and blueberry jam wrap around the energetic, wiry finish. This is a fabulous wine for the dinner table. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015. "
