Details

This Dolcetto has lovely aromas of violets, wild red fruit and mineral touches. On the palate there’s red and black cherries, blackberries and bramble. Well balanced, full bodied with smooth tannins and a long finish. This wine pairs exceptionally well with pizza, pasta with tomato sauce or cream sauce, mushrooms, and a variety of meats, from simple charcuterie to grilled steak. Dolcetto is best when served slightly chilled.

THE WINERY

Bera Vittorio e Figli is a family winery from Canelli, in the region of Asti, whose origins go back to the 18th century. They have cultivated their 12 hectares of vineyard organically for decades, and in the winery they produce natural wines, so they do not use enzymes, oenological yeasts, or chemical treatments that may make the wine less typical or alter it. The vineyard for Bera Vittorio Sarvanet has an approximate area of one hectare. Its soils are of calcareous marls and it is worked organically. The vines are trained in Guyot style and have an average age of about 15 years. They produce around 50 hectolitres per hectare and are harvested manually.

Once in the winery, the Dolcetto is de-stemmed and vatted. It macerates for about 25 days with the skins, and fermentation occurs exclusively with natural yeasts. The process is carried out in 50hl cement tanks. Then, once the wine has been produced, it is subjected to ageing on lees in the same tank for about 24 months. Lastly, the wine is bottled without filtering or clarifying it. Production is limited to some 6,000 bottles.
