Dolcetto d’Alba, “Loreto”
This special cuvée is harvested from older vines within the “cru” of Loreto in the confines of the village of Barbaresco. The primary fermentation occurs in stainless steel for a 10 day period; then, the wine is racked into oak “botti” to age for a year prior to bottling. This is a particularly robust wine that shows a complexity rare to find in Dolcetto. One finds the flavors and aromas of earth mingled with wild berries and compelling presence of grainy, dusty and sweet tannin. We import 300 cases of this cuvée annually.
