Organoleptic properties


Dolcetto d'Alba Superiore has a deep ruby ​​red color. It smells of blackberries, jam and has subtle toasting notes and dried fruit. The taste is intense, moderately complex and full-bodied. The rather delicate tannins lead to a persistent finish. This wine is ideal with first courses and thanks to its tannins it finds an excellent match with meats and cheeses. Its strong character makes it excellent also with grilled meat.
