Despite the name, Dolcetto is a dry wine; the etymology would derive from the Piedmontese term duset, that is hump, because it is precisely on the humps of the hills that the vineyards are in an ideal position for optimal growth of the grapes; the name could also derive from the fact that the ripe bunches have a very sweet taste, unlike the other great protagonist of the Langhe, Nebbiolo. This is a sweet throughout the meal where the fruit, with all its facets, predominates. The "Ricciaia" is an ideal wine as an everyday table companion, eclectic, versatile and informal. Its grapes are born on a hill overlooking Monviso where the rows stretch out to the south. It is a Dolcetto d'Alba Superiore worked exclusively in steel and left to rest for six months. Fresh, fragrant, rightly acid, with medium body, ready to drink, very pleasant, longevity around 2-3 years.
