Why we love it
This Dolcetto Ottotori is a single vineyard, natural red wine obtained from organically grown, biodynamic cultivated grapes, and takes its name from the vineyard, Ottotori.
If La volpe was a great dolcetto, the Ottotori is a step above. Not only the grapes are carefully selected but the wine is aged in barrels for about a year and then left to refine in the bottle. The dolcetto is a fruit driven grape with plenty of acidity, by wood ageing the wine, it acquires longevity and structure.
The Dolcetto Ottotori does not contain added sulphites and it is fermented using yeasts naturally present in the grapes, unfiltered. This aged Dolcetto is a great red wine with a big complex nose with fruity and spicy notes, in the palate is full, warm, smooth, perfectly balanced with a long finish
