2018 Dolcetto d'Alba Vigna Scot

Case of 12 bottles

Varietals: 100% Dolcetto 

Ageing/Vinification: Fermented with indigenous yeasts, macerated with submerged cap for 3-4 days. Aged in 50hl Slavonian oak for 6 months followed by an additional 6 months in cement tanks.

Description: Medium-structured yet soft with typical aromas such as bright red fruits, minerality and floral notes. Although it is a wine made to be drunk relatively young, it still has ageing potential for up to 5 years.  Good acid balance with ripe, structured tannin. 

Cavallotto Family Tasting Note:
The cool vintage of 2018 gave us a Dolcetto Scot of complexity - unusual for this generally simple wine. Red and black plums, berries and spices emerge from the nose. On the palate, the wine has surprising depth and presence, with excellent ripe tannins and a bright, forceful finish highlighted with mineral notes. This one can sit for a few years, and will drink well until age 8-10. (October 2019)
