DOLCETTO D’ALBA DOC
This fresh and fruity wine is a lively ruby red with purple overtones.
Cherry, blackberry and plum stand out on the nose, joined by hints of violet, blueberry and strawberry.
These are also noticeable on the mouth, leading into a slightly bitter, characteristically almondy finish.
