Winemaker's Notes:

The Dolcetto d'Alba Magna has an intense ruby red color, with purple reflections. The nose has a rich floral scent that is reminiscent of berries, which carries through to the taste.

Enjoy with pizza, simple pastas and chicken. It goes well with gorgonzola or other pungent Italian cheeses. When served slightly chilled, it is a lovely dessert wine but it is not sweet.

My Notes:

About Paolo Manzone:

Gianpaolo Manzone is the sixth generation of his family involved in the wine industry in the heart of the legendary Piedmont region. Before Gianpaoloís father Armando started making Barbara díAlba, Nebbiola díAlba and Dolcetto díAlba in 1970 in the village of Sinio, the family were well-known farmers and grape-growers.

In 1999, Gianpaolo bought vineyards in Serralunga díAlba and began production of a Barolo Meriame and Barolo Serralunga. The age of the vineyards in Sinio have an average age of 20 to 25 years, while vines from the Serralunga property range from 25 to 60 years old (the grapes from the oldest vines go into the wineryís flagship Barolo DOCG, which are situated in the best part of the famed Meriame area). Gianpolo is the winemaker and vineyard manage for the 10 hectares of vines the family owns in the two towns.
