Old vine Dolcetto from Dave Fletcher's project Cantina della Stazione. This wine oozes dark cherry fruit, plums, grilled herbs, lavender, liquorice, some incense and graphite, combined with an extremely fine tannin structure, which gives the wine a serious touch. It proves that in the right winemaker's hands, Dolcetto can be a serious alternative to Barbera and Nebbiolo. The grapes come from 60-year-old vines in the Bricco Capre vineyard in Alba. Fermented with natural local yeasts in open tanks with manual pigéage (punch downs), and aged for 8 months in over 10-year-old barriques. Only 2,000 bottles produced.
