Winemaker's Notes

This d'Alba Dei Grassi is an elegant, feminine and delicate wine.

Critical Acclaim

"A wine of remarkable elegance and polish, the 2011 Dolcetto d’Alba Dei Grassi caresses the palate with layers of soft fruit, floral aromas and phenomenal length. This isn’t a huge wine, but rather is endowed with superb elegance. Hints of tar, smoke and game wrap around the brilliant finish. I don’t think I have ever tasted a more refined and Burgundian Dolcetto than this. "

Style: Smooth & Supple
Very classy Dolcetto with perfumed nose of flowers and red fruits. Very consistent with long persistent finish. More elegant in style than most Docetto's Would buy again.
