Dolcetto is the “wine of friendship“, a wonderful synthesis of authentic country flavors. It is generally consumed within the year following its production.
The processing of Dolcetto follows the same steps as the other Borgogno family vines: winter pruning, the work of setting, cleaning and cutting the shoots, and finally, during the month of September, the harvest.
In the winery we start with crushing and destemming, followed by maceration in the presence of the skins for about 5-6 days at a maximum temperature of 25-27 °C.
The wine is stored in stainless steel tanks. Here it completes malolactic fermentation and is periodically racked off. Dolcetto is bottled between April and May.
Very bright ruby red with violet hues.
It is delicate and fruity. A young and fragrant wine.
It is round, dry and bitterish with hints of fruits such as black cherry.
Temperature: 18 – 19 °C.
Gastronomic combinings: antipasti, first courses with, above all, meat sauces, soups.
It’s your guy if…
It is a wine suitable for the whole meal; you can pair it with appetizers, first courses (especially if they are dressed with meat sauces), soups and stews.
Silvia recommends it with bread and salami and adds, “it is almost an institution in Langa homes”.
Serving temperature: 18 – 19 °C.
