Dolcetto d’Alba 2016

Sorelle di Nicola Feyles

Traditional short maceration. Fermentation on wild yeast lasts for about 20 days, at room temperature and in steel vats, with remontage to break up the submerged cap. The wine then stays for about 12 months in vats and for a shorter period of time in Slavonian oak barrels of medium capacity (30-50hl). It remains at least another 6 months in bottle before release. The wine is neither filtered nor fined in order to keep its taste and aroma as intact as possible. Aromas of Mildly damp undergrowth, with violet and cherry notes. Intense and persistent, with taste of dried herbs, blackberry, bitter almond and carob.
