Dolcetto d’Alba

Description

Wine with fragrance and youth characters: ruby and purplish, fresh and very fruity flavour, totally dry, full and harmonious, completing it in a pleasant aftertaste of bitter almond.

History

Is one of the most typical and popular varieties of Piedmont. It owes its name maybe to the sweetness of ripe grapes, or according to another theory: the Piedmontese word “dosset”, meaning a not particularly high hill. The wine made with dolcetto grapes has been for centuries one of the protagonists of the country life in Piedmont and one of the main  exchanging objects with Liguria, from which beyond the oil and salt, it imported anchovies, the main ingredient of “Bagna caouda”.
