Dolcetto

Monferrato DOC

Area

Portacomaro d’Asti.

Grapes

Vinification and Maturation

The hand-picked grapes are crushed and de-stalked and then vinified in the traditional way in horizontal fermentation tanks. The period of contact of the must with the skins gives the wine its characteristic intense ruby-red color, while its attractively mellow style derives from the grape variety itself and from its excellent state of ripeness.

Very bright ruby-red, with inviting purplish highlights.

Bouquet

A pronounced vinous aroma; fresh and youthful.

Flavour

Dry but well-balanced, with an appealing almondy vein.

Serving Temperature

Serve at around 16°C. (61°F.)

Food Combinations

It goes particularly well with full-flavored dishes such as pasta or rice dishes with sauces, meat in gravy, or stews containing vegetables.

Alcohol Level

12,5% vol.
