Dogliani DOCG Bricco Mollea

GRAPE

Dolcetto

WINEMAKING

Vinification of grapes coming for the cru Bricco Mollea, in the Commune of Vicoforte, at the furthest south border of Langhe, at the feet of the Alps. The vines are extremely old, the most part planted in the 50’s and the 70’s. Alcoholic fermentation happens only in concrete and lasts around 10 days. Then malolactic takes place in concrete and/or stainless steel and cold stabilization happens outdoor or in conditioned steel tanks. After stabilization, the wine ages for some months in concrete, steel and plastic, before being bottled, usually in April-May of the year after the harvest.

DESCRIPTION

This is our idea of Dolcetto, with the goal to exalt the “vinousity” of this great classic piedmontese grape variety. It is a funny wine, non-extremely complex in the mid-palate, slightly tannic and with a lingering, spicy and refreshing finish. Perfect to pair with a saffron risotto, pad thai, chicken tikka masala, Mortadella and Squacquerone.
