Dolcetto d’Alba

Dolcetto is a traditional wine and a traditionally grown grape varietal. It is an indisputable sign of a marked biodiversity that is becoming less and less. The wine plays on the characteristics of youth: ruby and purple color, fragrant aromas between floral and fruity, full, harmonious and elegant flavor, with a pleasant bitter aftertaste.
