Forte Masso Dolcetto D’alba

Size: 750ml

Dolcetto d’Alba DOC Fortemasso is produced in the region of Castelletto, recognized above all for the production of Barolo. This is undoubtedly the best production region for Barolo. The vines have an east and south-east exposure, on sloping land with sandy and limestone soil.

Fortemasso wines thus highlight the distinctive characteristics of each grape variety. They therefore reveal the clear and recognizable natural traits that derive from the soil and climate of each vintage. In addition, the unique combination of geological characteristics and the regional microclimate in which the vineyards of Fortemasso are located produce deep, mineral and very elegant wines that continue to refine with age.

Freshly harvested grapes are destemmed and ferment in temperature controlled stainless steel wine vats. After 4 to 5 days of maceration, the must wine is drawn off, separated from the marc and left to ferment at controlled temperature for another 5 to 6 days. Following the malolactic fermentation, the wine is finally refined for a few months in steel and then bottled in the spring.

This Dolcetto d’Alba DOC has an intense garnet red color with light purple reflections.

Clear, broad with hints of cherry, blackberry, light spice and plum.

Harmonious, ample, warm, tasty with a fruity and persistent finish.
