A classic Dolcetto country wine with plenty of drinking flow.
These grapes for the Claudio Alario Dolcetto Sori' Montegrillo 2020 DOCG come from a vineyard located in the commune of Diano D'Alba, facing south-east. The grapes are hand-picked throughout September and then processed in the winery's cantina. First, fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks for a year.
The Docetto has everything that makes an excellent country wine. Freshness, liveliness, fruity aromas, density, structure and a good tannin structure. The acid is present and perfectly integrated. A great terrace wine, but also good with salami, pizza, pasta and grilled food. Drink immediately or within 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 dedicated themselves to viticulture with great passion and add further chapters to the long family history.
In 1988, straight out of agricultural school, Claudio took over his father's business. However, by this time, Claudio had already put many years of practical experience behind him. From a very young age, he spent every free minute working in the vineyard with his father and grandfather. Above all, working with his grandfather in the vineyard had a big 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-vineyard wines from the Nebbiolo grapes. With his son Mattia, who has been working in the company for a few years, the next Alario generation is already ready. The Alario family practices integrated viticulture.
