Dolcetto d’Alba

Pleasant simplicity

Langa style. Between the Dolcetto vine and the Langa hills there is a pact that has lasted for centuries. Not only because the grape was born on these hills on the right bank of the Tanaro river. Above all, for the strong bond that has endured between this grape variety and its wine and the people who live in these areas. If it is common to look at the hills and track in their crests and slopes the well-defined rows of Dolcetto during the four seasons of the year, it is just as common to look at the wineglasses set on the tables in the houses of the region and find in them the colors and fragrant aromas of youthful Dolcetto d'Alba.

 

Immediate fragrance. Our eleven Dolcetto vineyard parcels are situated on the highest hills of Barolo: they have "white soils" of a high limestone content, with challenging slopes and altitudes often exceeding 350-400 meters above sea level. Year after year we work these vineyards with passion and finally harvest their perfectly ripened grapes in the middle of September. After separate vinifications of each parcel, we select the best lots to create an „assemblaggio" wine: assembled according to the Langa tradition. This bottle embodies quality and holds a young and fragrant wine that is equally enjoyable on the daily table and as at a party.
