Since the first experiment of its winemaking, in the harvest of 2013, it was clear to those making it that this wine was to be something special: the complexity and elegance of the Dolcetto grape, a centuries old tradition in the Langhe, sourced from slightly looser soils with excellent exposure in Monforte.
A Dolcetto was born with characteristics of harmony and elegance combined with a tannic structure and perfect full bodied balance. A unique interpretation brought to the wine scene from the vines of the hills where for a long time Dolcetto has been the the enological flagship.
The bouquet is intriguing. A scent of fruity notes quickly saturates the nostrils. Hints of wild strawberry and raspberries mix with a light herbaceous sensation and florals of violet and cyclamen. Dry on the palate with a moderate tannin and a gentle acidity which makes a notable impact on its freshness. The fruit which is perceptible on the nose pervades the palate making this immediately enjoyable. On the finish the almond aftertaste, characteristic of Dolcetto, is clear. A fresh wine with a balanced texture. Ready to drink and be enjoyed
