Description

This is a wonderfully elegant yet rich and characterful Piemontese red, 100% Dolcetto from the small Belcolle family estate.

It’s unoaked, simply picked and vinified for about a week in stainless steel. The colour is a brilliant ruby red, deep and vivid with a purplish tinge. Full, smooth and rounded in the mouth, with aromas of bashed red berries, hints of cured meats, floral aromas, herbs and wild garrigue, all beautifully pulled together on a backbone of chalky tannins and gentle, cleansing acidity.

Pairs brilliantly with robust pasta dishes like roasted aubergine in a rich tomato sauce, game or mushroom risotto.

Producer: Belcolle

Founded in 1976 by brothers Franco and Carlo Pontiglione and Giuseppe Priola, the Belcolle winery is based in Verduno, one of the villages of Barolo. Nebbiolo is the star here — the noble grape of Barolo and Barbaresco — with prized sites including the Monvigliero and Borgo Castagni vineyards forming part of 18 hectares of vineyards that surround the winery. Barbera and Dolcetto are also grown here, producing elegant and characterful reds, with Favorita and Chardonnay making up the minority white plantings.
