Lively Dolcetto with ripe fruits, structured and soft on the palate with pleasant tannins.
The Dolcetto Sori Costa Fiore comes from the vineyard of the same name, which is located in the municipality of Diano D’Alba and was planted about 50 years ago . Its location is in the south-west and therefore the grapes can reach optimal ripening. The geological structure of the soil, which is of Mycenaean origin, is rich in white marl, where the vine finds its natural habitat.
The grape harvest usually takes place in September of each year. The hand-picked grapes are immediately destemmed in the cantina and fermented in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. The one-year ripening period also takes place in stainless steel tanks. After a short bottle storage, the Dolcetto goes on sale.
This wine has an intense ruby red color with violet reflections. The aroma is determined by ripe fruits, underlaid with exotic notes. In the mouth you can feel a full, yet soft and well-structured taste. The tannin is ripe and slightly sweet and the finish is persistent. A very successful Dolcetto! This wine was valued by King Victor Emanuel II more than a century ago. Goes well with starters, pasta, pizza and also with grilled sausages.
THE PRODUCER: ALARIO CLAUDIO
The Langhe provides the spectacular backdrop for the 120 year history of the Alario family business. Claudio Alario and his family live in the municipality of Diano d'Alba. They have devoted themselves to viticulture with great passion and add further chapters to the long family history.
In 1988 Claudio, coming straight from the agricultural school, took over his father's business. However, at this point Claudio had already had many years of practical experience behind him. From a very young age, he worked every free minute with his father and grandfather in the vineyard. Working with his grandfather in the vineyard had a particularly strong impact on him.
Today Claudio produces around 40,000 bottles of wine annually on 10 hectares. In addition to the Dolcetto wines, Claudio has also made a name for himself as a Barolo producer. Years ago, he bought additional vineyards in the municipalities of Verduno and Serralunga D'Alba. He presses two excellent Barolo single-site wines from the Nebbiolo grapes. With his son Mattia, who has been working in the company for a few years, the next generation of Alario is ready. The Alario family operates integrated viticulture.
