Why we love it
Dolcetto is the wine of the area and the widely cultivated grape, the winery is located in the heart of the Dolcetto di Ovada DOCG appellation, and this wine is made with organic, biodynamically grown dolcetto grapes following the natural philosophy. Still, this is not your typical dolcetto, there is a lot more.
The Dolcetto La volpe does not contain added sulphites and the fermentation is made using yeasts naturally present on the grapes and it is bottled unfiltered after the wine spend about a year in a steel tank and another year in the bottle to refine, resulting in a Dolcetto full and immediate, fresh, with plenty of fruit, on the nose and on the palate, elegant, refreshing.
The Dolcetto La Volpe is a very versatile wine that pairs beautifully an array of food, from pizza to pasta, from red meat to fresh cheeses and charcuterie.
