  4. Dolcetto d'Alba Basarin DOC

The Dolcetto d’Alba Basarin is named for the high-quality vineyard from which its grapes originate.  It is made from 100% Dolcetto grapes which typify the food-friendly, easy-drinking yet quality-minded wines of this region.  The grapes for this wine are pressed and then allowed to mature for 6 months in a stainless steel tank to preserve Dolcetto’s fresh qualities.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby-red in color, aromas of black and purple fruits complement undertones of mocha, cocoa, and licorice.  Smooth tannins and integrated alcohol make for a smooth and elegant wine that can be consumed with a wide variety of foods. 

Food Pairing

Pairs well with pizza, Bolognese sauces, and gnocchi.
