This wine is the valued result of the careful selection of the Dolcetto variety of grapes, which come from hillsides that enjoy a highly individual local climate. The wine is refined for two months in French oak casks and three months in the bottles. It is a ruby colour with a purple reflection and has a typically pleasant winey aroma. It tastes full, dry, pleasantly bitter and well-proportioned.

The producer

The wine-makers Bruno Giacosa have been producing and ageing wine for three generations. Their vineyards are situated high in the hills with a fortunate south/south-easterly exposure and a unique local climate, due to their position in a natural amphitheatre. Although the cultivation of the vines is conducted with scrupulous attention to the demands of tradition, certain modern practices, such as the thinning out and trimming of the vines, are not ignored. The yield of grapes reaches an average of 60-70 hundred kilos per hectare. Wine-making takes place in stainless steel tubs, which allow the fermentation temperature to be controlled by chilling apparatus. The red wines are then aged in French oak casks. If there are bad years, when the wine does not reach an acceptable standard of quality, it is not bottled.
