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.
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.
