Dolcetto D'Alba DOC


Dolcetto grapes thrive in the high, cool hills of Alba, where the grapes ripen early. In Piedmont, Dolcetto is the most stylish of everyday wines. Among the distinctive red wines of Alba, the taste of Dolcetto may be the easiest to acquire. When young, it has a deep mulberry color and a hint of newly fermenting grapes on the nose, but rich with mellow fruit flavors of almost chocolate-like sweetness, offset by a dry mouth tingling undertone. Cairel's Dolcetto d'Alba from the vineyard of "Mandorlo" is the ultimate of Dolcetto's with an intense perfume of fresh flowers and mature fruit. This wine is a fine accompaniment to all courses, from antipasto to the main course. Serve at room temperature.
