A classic Dolcetto country wine with plenty of drinking flow.
These grapes for this Dolcetto Montagrillo come from a vineyard in the municipality of Diano D'Alba facing southeast. The hand-picking of the grapes takes place in the course of September and these are then processed in the cantina of the winery. First of all, fermentation takes place in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. The wine is then matured in stainless steel tanks for a year.
The Docetto has everything that makes an excellent country wine. Freshness, liveliness, fruity aromas, density, structure and good tannin structure. The acid is present and perfectly integrated. A great terrace wine, but also good with salami, pizza, pasta and grilled foods. Drink immediately or for the next 3 years.
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 they 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. He was particularly influenced by the work with his grandfather in the vineyard.
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.
