2012 Munfrina Dolcetto d'Alba DOC
Dolcetto is one of the most important wines of our winery. The microclimate of Treiso and its soil (extraordinary for growing Nebbiolo) give to the wine Dolcetto a very good tannic and sweet texture. The result is a balance between important structure and smoothness. The name derives from the
old owner, a lady from Monferrato, who laboriously and diligently worked these lands.
