Vintage 2016

Classification

Dolcetto d'Alba D.O.C.

Grapes

Dolcetto 100 %

Origin & Soil

vineyards in the townships of Barbaresco, Treiso, Alba e Monforte d’Alba with soils created by powerful marine currents during the Miocene epoch, mixed in composition with both sand and clay

Taste

a lively ruby red in color, grapey in aroma with notes of fruit and flowers, a classic Piedmontese wine which can be drunk during an entire meal from hors d’oeuvres to cheese. Serve at a temperature of 16° centigrade (60° Fahrenheit) from one to three years after the vintage

Climate Vintage

The year 2015 began with a very snowy winter, which helped create an abundant store of groundwater in the sub-soil. A mild spring led to an early start to plant growth and development, and this lasted all the way through the entire growing season. No rain fell from mid-June on, and temperatures stabilized at levels above seasonal averages until the end of August. This lengthy heat wave did not influence in any way the ripening of the grapes thanks, in addition to other factors, to the accumulated reserves of moisture in the soil. The harvest began in early September with the Arneis and Moscato grapes, continued with the Dolcetto and Barbera crop, and terminated at the end of the month with the Nebbiolo. The entire crop was of excellent level from every point of view, both in terms of the healthiness of the grapes and of analytical data on sugar and acidity as well

Vintage

 the vintage gave a healthy crop with an excellent balance of the various components in the grapes (sugars, acidity and polyphenols). After the destemming and pressing the grapes fermented for seven days on their skins at a maximum temperature of 27°-28° centigrade (80°-82° Fahrenheit). The malolactic fermentation was completed in mid-December and the wine was aged al months in stainless steel tanks before bottling in the spring
