The 2016 Dolcetto d'Alba Vigna Scot reveals a thick and darkly concentrated appearance. The bouquet is layered and rich with dark fruit, spice, pipe tobacco and pressed rose. This Dolcetto d'Alba will be released in June. Fruit comes from a two-hectare parcel and the wine is made with submerged cap in tanks with punch downs for three days. It is aged in large oak casks for six months.

This red shows floral, black currant, earth and mineral aromas and flavors. Balanced and intense, yet more traditional in style and not as flashy as many of its peers. Decant. Drink now through 2021. 1,111 cases made.
