Designation of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin
A classic wine of the Langa hills, Dolcetto’s intense ruby-red colour sparkles with mauve highlights, while its fragrant and flowery aromas feature cherries and violets, joined by ripe fruit and raisins after a year.
The nose is confirmed by the flavour: dry and well-balanced, with noticeable body and stuffing.
