“Vigne Dolci”, Dogliani Superiore
The vineyard’s high-altitude position (600m) reveals itself in a lifted, invigoratingly pure nose of bright red fruits and sun-kissed stones. Whereas much Dolcetto is merely fruity and floral, an earth-tinged savory streak gives “Vigne Dolci” an extra aromatic dimension, and Nicoletta’s hands-off approach to the fermentation is evident in just the barest hint of volatility which lifts rather than dominates. Rocca Ciglie’s soils are light and sandy giving an energetic and racy character. There are honest and snappy Dolcetto tannins, to be sure, but the overall impression is one of lift and purity. The wine is aged in stainless steel thereby allowing the site’s exuberant personality to flourish.
