Vineyard: Assarti, a hamlet in the ancient village of Barge located at the foot of Mount Viso and Monte Bracco of the Alps range. Vineyards lie between 400 and 450 meters on schist soil.
Vinification: Hand-harvested grapes are crushed and de-stemmed before being transferred to steel fermentation vats where they are left to macerate for 4-6 days at controlled temperatures with frequent pumping. After the alcoholic fermentation the wine was allowed to is complete MLF. Aged for a few months in steel tanks until bottling.
Tasting Notes: This wine possesses notes of the usual dark berry fruits synonymous with Dolcetto such as cherry and blackberry, but its character deepens with the old mountain valley’s grounds providing an introduction of rich plums leaving a fantastic finish of almonds upon the palate. Terrific acidity - great to pair with antipasto as well as all meat dishes, especially roasts, it is also a fantastic accompaniment to cheeseboards, particularly pairing well with soft and semi-hard cheeses.
