Notes from the Winemaker:
A truly unique Dolcetto d’Alba. Its grapes come from a century-old vineyard that was saved from the phylloxera disease thanks to the partially sandy soil Boschi di Berriand particular microclimate. Thus we find here an emblematic and rare example of vines that are not spliced with American roots. In the glass, this Dolcetto “Boschi di Berri” presents a magnificent, intense ruby-red color with reflections which vary between fuchsia and violet. The bouquet recalls violets and raspberries and is quite intense and persistent. The warm and nearly velvety taste offers enjoyable sensations of ripe cherries and currants. The structure, harmony and persistence remind us of the traditional late-19th century Dolcetto. Extraordinary emotions are revived at every vintage, and in particular at the moment of the first tasting. This important wine is well accompanied by cold and warm hors d’oeuvres as well as by pasta dishes, roasts, white meat and fresh cheeses. It ages well in the bottle for several years. We recommend a large-bowl wine glass with long stem.


Ratings & Reviews

89 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2016 Vintage):
"Tart cherry, crab apple jelly, leather, earth and light herb flavors mark this old-school red. The tannins are rustic, but this persists on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 200 cases made, 50 cases imported." - BS (Issue Web Only - 2019)
