The best Dolcetto's come from around Alba, as does this one from De Forville. A clear and bright ruby in colour, the wine has an expressive nose of youthful fruits with rich dark cherries and licorice on the palate and a fresh finish.
This typical red of the Langhe region is harvested from three separate parcels spread between the communes of Barbaresco and Neive. The vines are an average age of 30 years. After a fermentation of approximately 10 days in stainless steel, the wine is racked into large oak “botti” for about six months, being bottled at the onset of summer of the following year.
