A very harmonious and full-bodied Dolcetto in a class of its own. The grapes come from the Vigna la Costa vineyard, which is 400m above sea level. The vines have an average age of 50 years and produce berries of the highest quality.

At the beginning of September, the grapes are picked by hand and then destemmed and lightly pressed. The fermentation then takes place in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. The expansion takes place in large oak barrels and takes 2 years. The Dolcetto is not filtered and finally comes onto the market after six months in bottle storage.

This organic wine has very complex notes, is very balanced, concentrated with fine-grained tannins and a long finish. A top class Dolcetto. The Dolcetto is ready to drink immediately and for the next 8 years. A good accompaniment to lamb, poultry, risotto and aged cheese.

The producer Chionetto Quinto

The history of the Chionetti family has been linked to viticulture since the 19th century.
In 1912 Giuseppe Chionetti bought a company in the vineyards of San Luigi in the municipality of Dogliani. From then on, the Chionetti family sold their Dolcetto wine to the largest traders in the region.

Little by little, the family began selling bottled wines, and the Chionetti name was formally established. But it is thanks to Quinto, the grandson of the founder Giuseppe, that the marketing of the bottles with the family name really increased.

Andrea, the son of Quinto, decided to explore the potential of the vineyards, and So they started to produce three Dolcetti Crus: Sorì Briccolero, San Luigi, Vigna la Costa.

During these years the company expanded considerably. The Chionetti wines became synonymous with Dolcetto wines from Dogliani, and the family began exporting abroad and to the United States. During his lifetime, Quinto received a recognized high reputation in the entire wine world and this continued after his death.

In 1988, at the moment of greatest growth, Andrea and his daughter Elena died in a car accident. However, Quinto continued the work he had handed over to his son years earlier and led the company into the new millennium with great determination. Quinto received a recognized high reputation in the entire wine world during his lifetime and this has continued after his death.

In 2013, Quinto finally handed over the reins to his grandson Nicola, who decided to continue the tradition of producing Dogliani and to resume the winemaking of the Cru La Costa, which his father Andrea wanted.

Since In 2015 the Chionetti family acquired 3 vineyards in the Barolo area. The grapes are vinified separately, and now Chionetti produces three different Barolo Cru wines.
