The Dolcetto d'Alba DOC from Casa Vinicola Bruno Giacosa is ruby red in the glass with violet nuances. On the nose, this traditional wine from Piedmont has a typical vinous aroma with crisp aromas of blueberries, blackberries and black cherries. Dry, full-bodied and juicy on the palate, the tannins and acidity complement each other and give the Dolcetto d'Alba its special character, which is emphasized by the long finish with a pleasant, delicately bitter aftertaste typical of the grape variety.
