Winemaker's Notes

Dolcetto d'Alba is produced using 100% Dolcetto grapes from different vineyards. There are four production areas, two in Barolo, one in Novello and one in Monforte d'Alba. These areas are particularly suited for the production of Dolcetto d'Alba as the soil and the microclimate create a perfect environment in which the grapes can grow. The altitude varies from 250 to 500 metres above sea level and the average age of the vineyards is around 20 years. The most important factor that distinguishes each area is the exposure to the sun. The grapes are vinified according to the classic methods that have always been used but with the aid of modern equipment.

Critical Acclaim

"A gorgeous, layered wine loaded with perfumed dark fruit."
