Located in the Sorì Paitin, surrounded by Nebbiolo, we choose to let this vineyard in our best plot. From 8 generations both Dolcetto and Nebbiolo always expressed their best in this part of the hill. This choice was made to honour an important variety in the Piedmontese tradition and to respect our inner principle of biodiversity preservation.

 

Dark, sumptuous and powerful […] Dark red cherry, sweet floral notes and cloves wrap around the intense, juicy finish.
