Tasting Note:

Floral, juicy soft cherry fruit, clear vivid flavours interspersed with touches of herb and spice. Smoother and a little more bodied and complex than most Dolcettos whilst keeping its lightness of touch and vitality. A single vineyard wine from one of the region’s best zones for Dolcetto; Montelupo. Here the altitude and full south exposure result in uniquely fine, opulent and fragrant Dolcetto. The vines are 45 years old which adds further complexity and intensity to the wine. One of the very best Dolcettos there is.
