Dolcetto is traditionally sparse in various zones in Piedmont but its origin is in the Acqui area. It is an intense ruby-red in colour with a tinge of purple.
The aroma is one characteristically of wine, with hints of plum, cherry and berries. Its flavour is dry and pleasantly tannic with a moderate amount of acidity and a finale typically of almond.
We suggest the choice of this wine to accompany any choice of dish but it is especially indicated to accompany cold-cuts. Dolcetto wine is excellent as a young wine and you need not wait for it to be aged before drinking.
Albarossa wine is a crossbreed between Nebbiolo of Dronero (Chatus) and Barbera studied in 1938 by Professor Dalmasso and experimented approximately 60 years later in the “Tenuta Cannona” (vine-growing and wine experimental centre of the Piedmont Region).
Albarossa has a deep-ruby-red colour, its flavour has a hint of intense red fruit aroma, spices and a characteristic vegetable note. It has a powerful structure, characterised by a pleasant freshness, a balanced tannin sensation, great softness and excellent aromatic persistance.
We highly suggest serving this wine to accompany traditional Italian dishes.
