Dolcetto d’Alba 2019


This Dolcetto comes from vines up to forty year old planted in his Altavilla vineyard, high in the hills above the city of Alba. This spent a fortnight on skins, before being pressed off to stainless steel for a year of rest. The age of the plants, clay soils and southern exposition have produced a Dolcetto of unusual concentration and complexity, with black fruits and a pleasant earthiness at the fore. As usual we have just a few cases of this, so you best be quick.
