Dolcetto 2023 (Dry)


Deep raspberry in hue with a palate of black cherries and liquorice, a dry and scrumptious red wine, with mouth filling savoury tannins


Average Age of Vines:Vineyard 28 Site – 12 Years
Yield per Hectare:5.8 mt/Ha
Harvest Date:1st March 2023
Winemaking:The fruit was crushed and destemmed, then transferred to an open fermenter. Once the ferment was established, the skins were plunged every 6 hours. The ferment was kept under 30 degrees C till dryness was achieved. Prior to completion of the ferment the wine was inoculated with a MLF bacteria. The wine was then left a further 7 days on skins after ferment was completed.
History:Dolcetto is a black Italian grape variety widely grown in the Piedmonte Region, Italy. The grape is widely known for its low levels of acidity and tendency to be ready for an early harvest compared with its other Piedmontese counterparts – Barbera and Nebbiolo.
Food Pairing:Enjoy with pastas with meat sauce, roasted poultry, or a simple Pizza.
Cellaring:It is a wine that typically drinks well whilst young and fresh. But equally the tannins will allow it to age over the next 2-3 years as well.
