Characteristics

Dolcetto is one of the most important wines of our winery. The microclimate of Treiso and its soil (extraordinary for growing Nebbiolo) give to the wine Dolcetto a very good tannic and sweet texture. The result is a balance between important structure and smoothness. The name derives from the old owner, a lady from Monferrato, who laboriously and diligently worked these lands

Technical notes

wine produced by trying to bring out the best varietal characteristics with the help of technical tools exalting the characteristics of the grape: controlled temperature during fermentation and short maceration of 4/5 days in order to preserve as much as possible fragrance and drinkability. After a cold decanting, it rests in stainless steel cask for 6/7 months, plus 1 month in the bottle

Tasting sheet

the visual impact is a beautiful purple red very bright. The olfactory analysis reminds of fruit and typical aromas, including red cherry. The taste is a very nice balance among tannins, acidity and alcohol, so that the wine is sapid and pleasant. The aftertaste, slightly bitter, reminds of almonds which is the very typical characteristic of this wine
