2018 Cantina Del Pino Dolcetto D’Alba

Article number: Del Pino Dolc
Availability: In stock (40)

Cantina del Pino was established nearly a hundred years ago by the former director of the Royal Enological School in Alba, Domizio Cavazza, who first called wine produced in that area from nebbiolo grapes Barbaresco. The company is named after a pine tree he planted to mark the birth of his first son, and while his family did not take up the business after he died, the Vacca family who took over after him have maintained it ever since. Sadly, just weeks before this wine arrived, we received the news tThe family uses no chemical fertilizers, and vineyard work is all done by hand, with extreme respect to the environment. In addition to their three barbarescos, produced with fruit from the Ovello and Albesani vineyards, two of the best sites of Barbaresco, the family also grows barbera, dolcetto, and freisa. This dolcetto comes from surrounding areas in the Piedmont and Langhe and is vinified in stainless steel. Aromatic and fresh, this dolcetto is one of our favorite table wines with all sorts of food, from pizza to pasta to roasted veggies.
