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. The wine spends six months in bottles before shipping.


Serving Hints
This wine is a perfect accompaniment to red meats, and an array of Italian cheeses, pastas and risotto.
