Tasting Notes

100% Dolcetto made from 40-70-year-old vines. Expressive and elegant red fruits with spiciness and smooth structured mouth feel. The most important wine of the estate, the Dolcetto for the top wine is sourced from parcels found in prime positions, as well as the oldest vines of the estate. The seven-year wait from harvest to release reflects the importance of the San Fereolo.

Dolcetto

A red grape variety grown in Piedmont and nearly nowhere else. Dolcetto-based wines are not sweet, as many people might surmise on hearing the name; the Piedmontese declared it "dolce" only because it is lower in acid than the wines they're used to.
