Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The Dolcetto grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in Alba, Neive and Diano d’Alba Villages, at 300 to 400 ft. above sea level. The average age of the vines is 30 years and they are grown on both Western and Eastern exposures in calcareous clay soils. After harvesting, the grapes are pressed and the must is fermented in temperature controlled steel tanks after a short period in contact with dry ice to increase complexity and aroma. Skin maceration takes place over six days, assuring good color and body and ages in the bottle for six months prior to release.


Serving Hints
This wine is a perfect accompaniment to chicken and pork dishes, as well as an array of Italian cheeses, pastas and risotto.
