  4. Dolcetto d`Alba DOC

This wine is made from 100% Dolcetto from 25-30 year old vines in the Trifolera zone, which is named after the prized white truffles that can be found in the area. The grapes are harvested in late September and vinified entirely in stainless steel tanks to ensure maximum freshness and fragrance.

Tasting Notes

Ruby red in color with violet tints, the Dolcetto d'Alba Trifolera entices the senses with notes of juicy black cherries, black currants and violets. This wine is very elegant and velvety with harmonious flavors and a pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

Food Pairing

This wine is highly recommended with vegetable pastas, roasted game hens or pork tenderloin with cranberry sauce.
