Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Dolcetto d'Alba, Piedmont, Italy

Elegance Rooted in Tradition:

Giacomo Borgogno & Figli, a beacon of winemaking excellence nestled in the iconic town of Barolo, Piedmont, brings forth the Dolcetto d'Alba, a testament to the estate's storied heritage and innovative spirit. Esteemed for its cellared Riserva Barolo, the winery's portfolio diversifies gracefully into the Dolcetto d'Alba, mirroring the rich tapestry of Piedmont's viticultural landscape.

Viticultural Virtues:

Cultivated in the revered Langhe area, the Dolcetto d'Alba grapes flourish on southwest-facing slopes, rooted in calcareous and clayey marl soils. This terroir, coupled with the Archetto variation of the Guyot training system, sets the stage for the Dolcetto grape to express its full potential. Harvested between September 10th and 20th, the grapes undergo a natural fermentation process, eschewing selected yeasts for a genuine reflection of the Langhe's essence.

Winemaking Wisdom:

The winemaking process adheres to the principles of tradition and authenticity. Following a 12-day fermentation at controlled low temperatures (24-28°C), the wine is gently pressed and aged in stainless steel tanks for four months at 18°C. This systematic approach, emphasizing minimal intervention, captures the Dolcetto's vibrant character, culminating in a wine bottle and refined one month before its release to the world.

Sensory Symphony:

The Dolcetto d'Alba presents an intense ruby red color, evolving to purplish hues. Its bouquet is a lively dance of vinous notes, fresh and fruity, with dominant red fruits such as cherry and strawberry, crafting a palate that is both invigorating and immensely pleasant.

Culinary Companions:

This Dolcetto d'Alba finds its perfect match in the rich flavors of pasta dishes adorned with meat sauce, embodying the quintessence of Italian dining. Its versatility and vibrant fruit profile make it an ideal pairing for various culinary creations, inviting enthusiasts to explore the harmonious interplay between food and wine.

A Legacy to Savor:

With each sip of Giacomo Borgogno & Figli's Dolcetto d'Alba, one embarks on a journey through time, celebrating the enduring legacy of a winery that has shaped Piedmont's wine culture. This Dolcetto is more than a wine; it is a narrative of passion, tradition, and the relentless pursuit of excellence that Giacomo Borgogno & Figli continues to champion.
