Vineyard Sources: Comune of Barbaresco, Tre Stelle MGA, and Neive, Marcorino MGA; vines were planted between 1973 and 1975.

Winemaking Notes: Harvest is manual. Grapes are softly pressed. Fermentation occurs naturally with native yeast in stainless steel tanks. The skins are submersed during fermentation via pump overs for around 10 days depending on vintage. Malolactic fermentation occurs at a constant temperature of 20°C. The Dolcetto ages in stainless steel and bottle before release. The wine is not filtered or fined.

Tasting Notes: Floral notes of violet, red fruits, clean, fresh, fragrant fruit pulp, fine sleek tannins, and persistent finish. Highly delightful to drink, this Dolcetto pairs well with appetizers, pasta dishes with light sauces, and fresh cheeses.

About the Name: This Dolcetto bottling is dedicated to Elizabeth, a friend of the family from San Francisco who has been helping with their Dolcetto harvest every year since 2000.

    The 2020 Dolcetto d'Alba A Elizabeth is a dark, supple wine endowed with unusual richness. Even so, it retains terrific transparency and nuance. Inky blue/purplish fruit, spice, licorice and lavender are laced into the textured finish. The 2020 is beautifully done.
