Grapes Dolcetto (70%) Nebbiolo (10%) Barbera (20%)
A totally delicious and rich, generous red: the Dolcetto fruit is so pure on the nose: raspberry and strawberry, very inviting with a touch of smoke. Full-bodied, ripe , rich fruit, plum and strawberry with a gentle supporting hand on the shoulder from the Nebbiolo; the oaked Barbera brings that touch of damson jam and spice. 14%
The first vintage was in 2017, that was a Barbera dominated wine. Inspiration struck in 2018 when it went to being centred on a lovely 35 year old Dolcetto vineyard, which has languished in Dolcetto’s fall from grace and honestly, hasn’t been getting the love it deserves. The addition of 20% Barbera, aged for 16 months in barrique and 10% of Nebbiolo, which spent 12 months in botti was genius.
