Dolcetto d’Alba D.O.C.
DENOMIMAZIONE DI ORIGINE CONTROLLATA
Fruity bouquet with hints of cherries. Smooth and delicate taste that is easy to love. Ideal serving temperature is 18°C. Best to uncork a few minutes before serving to let the wine develop all its fragrance. This is an elegant companion for all dishes, from the beginning to the end of every meal. It is particularly suitable for savory appetizers and a perfect match for “tagliatelle” (string pasta) in a butter sauce or a meat sauce, “agnolotti” (type of ravioli) and medium ripe cheeses.
