Dolcetto D’Alba Ferdinando Principiano

dolcetto_e  Every time I drink the Dolcetto D’Alba 2011 from F.Principiano, I am always impressed by how delicious it is. This is a Dolcetto Classico made from the Sant’Anna vineyard in alta langa….the Dolcetto zone where soils are richer in clay.

40 year old vines, 15-20 days fermentation, 10 months in steel, no sulphur during winemaking…(no micro-oxygenation)…and here it is at 12.5%!! It’s the perfect lunch wine with great earthy fruit and vibrant acid and those beautiful sweet tannins that are common to this grape.

If you can find me a better Dolcetto in SF….call me!!
