Pira Luigi Dolcetto d'Alba
A 30-year-old vineyard located in Serralunga d'Alba. North-western exposure and calcareous-clayish soil: these grapes give an intense and rich Dolcetto that reaches the same quality level as the DOCG Langhe Dolcetto.
Dolcetto is the name of the grape and literally means little sweet one. It is of great importance to the Piedmontese and is perfectly suited to the north-west of Italy in both climate and soil. It is matured in steel tanks for 8 to 9 months which contributes to its fresh and fruity cherry and almond character. It is a flavourful wine redolant of dark fruit in a soft style that shows great richness. It is very well-balanced with a long and complex finish.
