Dolcetto Bastia 19 C. Fantino 75cl

Sale price£15.85



Country: Italy

Region: Piemonte

Sub-Region: Alba

Grapes: Grape Dolcetto 100

Tasting Note:

Mouthwatering acid structure and agreeably soft in texture.

Displays lovely cherry, berry and floral flavours, with an

earthy, barnyard note. Ready to drink.


Harvest is generally in the second half of September. After a

brief maceration on the skins, the Dolcetto spends 8 months

in stainless steel vats prior to bottling.

Vineyard :

This wine is from 4.5ha of land close to the Conterno

Fantino winery. At just under 600m a.s.l. the vineyard is high

for the Barolo region and average slope is consequently

steep, at 25%. The composition of the soil is predominantly

sandy (57%) which is ideal for the production of perfumed,

floral Dolcetto with an attractive acid structure. The average

age of the vines is 15 years, and over recent seasons

quality has been improved through top grafting with smallberried,

loose-bunched clones. Yields are low for Dolcetto,

at slightly over 50 hl/ha.

Food matching:

Pan-seared venison with rosemary and dried cherries,

grilled lamb kebabs with cumin and cinnamon or grilled pork

chops with classic barbecue sauce.
