Winemaking Notes: The grapes are harvested by hand. They macerate with their skins at a controlled temperature in rotary fermenters for 2-4 days. The wine ages for 10 months in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation occurs naturally with indigenous yeast as does the malolactic fermentation. The wine is not fined, filtered, or clarified. No substances that could modify the color or the structure of the wine is ever used.
Tasting Notes: The Elio Altare Dolcetto is dry but soft with delicate tannins. Enjoy a full taste of red and black cherries. In Italy, it is considered an excellent everyday wine. Try serving slightly chilled during summer for an easy drinking experience.
