Dolcetto d'Alba DOC 2017, Costa di Bussia, Piedmont

Producer Note

Since 1988, the Costa di Bussia winery and vineyards have been owned and managed by the Sartirano family. The estate is located in the Bussia region near the village of Monforte d'Alba. It includes 15 hectares of the famous vineyards of ‘Campo dei Buoi’ and ‘Campo del Gatto’, which produce very special and complex wines.

Vineyard

The Dolcetto vines were planted between 2000 and 2007, on a south-easterly facing plot of 0.83 hectares. The vines are trained according to the Guyot method and yield a maximum of 90 quintals per year. The soils are partly marl-clay and partly sandstone-marl. These different combinations of soil types within the same sub-zone create a structural diversity which is reflected in the characteristics of the wine.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested at the desired level of maturity. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, at controlled temperatures of between 24 to 25°C and lasted for five days. Malolactic fermentation followed and then the wine was then left to rest in tank for six months, prior to being bottled.

Tasting Note

A smooth, fresh and fragrant wine, with aromas of raspberries, violets and plums. Spicy on the palate, with juicy flavours of fresh black cherries, raspberries and a touch of almond is captured on the dry and full finish.

Serving Suggestion

Delicious with risotto and pasta dishes, mushrooms and fresh cheese.
