Dosset Vino Rosso 2019 - Principiano Ferdinando - Piemonte, Italy 75cl
BOTTLE SIZE: 75CL
WINEMAKER: PRINCIPIANO FERDINANDO
Being located on the southern fringe of the Barolo zone the Principiano estate benefits from the biodiversity of the Alta Langhe; the wilderness that lies beyond the dense planting of Nebbiolo vineyards. This helps in maintaining a biodiverse balance in the vineyard. In 2003 he made the decision to move away from the world of consultants and their prescriptions, both in the vineyard and cantina and since then he’s been rewarded by the purity and drinkability of his wines.
Dosset (“Dolcetto” in the local dialect) is symbolic of this approach. At 10.5% alcohol, it is very light, fragrant and fruity. A graceful wine (produced with the grapes from the vineyards of St. Anna and San Martino of Monforte d’Alba), for the table, for the jug and for hilarious company – and with no added sulphites. The Nebbiolo also dials up the delightfulness. Located mainly in Le Coste di Monforte d’Alba with a small percentage of grapes from Boscareto in Serralunga, this delicate Neb comes from a hectare of forty-year old vines exposed grown at 350 metres a.sl. on sandy calcareous soils. Fermentation and maceration last from two to three weeks with native yeasts and without added sulphur. Ageing takes place for ten months in stainless steel tank. Bright with raspberries the nose is ethereal, leafy-fresh. There’s loads of crunchy punchy fruit, plenty of rose petal fragrance too.
