2019 Olek Bondonio Dolcetto d'Alba
This is a bright rendition of a grape that often gets overlooked and sits under the shadow of Nebbiolo and Barbera.
The fruit comes from 40 to 60-year-old vines in Altavilla, just a few hills away from the winery. It is lively and shows that red wine can be weighty but retain amazing drinkability at the same time. The Dolcetto was macerated on skins til end of fermentation (about two weeks) in stainless steel only.
