Dolcetto Dogliani Briccolero 2018 Chionetti
Dolcetto Dogliani Briccolero 2018 is a natural wine produced by Chionetti. This wine is made with only Dolcetto grapes from vineyards of the cru "Briccolero", with exposure to the South / East, and is one of the major protagonists of the denomination thanks to the passion and work of Quinto Chionetti, spiritual father and custodian of the wine heritage of Dogliani. His nephew Nicola, today at the reins of the company, has the merit of having converted the production to organic agriculture. Chionetti's wines thus follow the traditional style of the company with a natural production in which all the steps are carried out carefully and with the absolute prohibition of the use of chemical products: starting from the manual harvest, fermentation takes place spontaneously using only indigenous yeasts , without filtrations or stabilizations, which occur naturally in the winter cold. Dolcetto Dogliani Briccolero 2018 is a wine that perfectly identifies the identity of Dolcetto and the cru of origin with its liveliness, and smoothness supported by a beautiful structure: with an intense ruby red color with purple reflections, the nose releases the typical fruity scents cherry and red berry fruit that veer towards an elegant floral aroma of violet, in a frame of spices and tobacco deriving from partial aging in barrels. In the mouth it is full and fleshy, animated by a pleasant freshness and a silky tannin, it is a nice almond finish. It is an exceptional Dolcetto of extreme pleasantness and drinkability, light and harmonious. Perfect to drink immediately and medium-bodied, it is very versatile in combinations. It goes well with meat-based first courses and risotto, meat-based second courses and medium-aged cheeses.
