Beautiful deep violet purple color. Notes of purple flowers and fruits, violet, raspberries and dark cherries, delicate whiffles of mint and balsamic tones all lend tons of lift to the wine.

Producer Information

Monterustico is an exciting project from the Vaira family, seeking to revitalise Dogliani, a region which, 30 years ago, was more sought after than Barolo. Situated on the southern Langhe hills, about 16 kilometres south of Barolo, it is known to produce outstanding Dolcetto grown on clay/marl soils known as ‘formazioni di Lequio’.

The Vaira family are masters of the Langhe and purchased Monterustico in 2015 to preserve and bring new life to the historical Dogliani area. They aim to safeguard the old vineyards. The mitigating proximity of the river Tanaro and the presence of cool Alpine winds create a unique microclimate for Dolcetto, allowing for a gentle ripening of the grapes and delicate aromas to develop.

The Monterustico Dogliani is a generous, intense expression of Dolcetto grown on the hills outside the villages of Farigliano and Dogliani. After 18-20 days of maceration, ageing occurs in stainless steel with a partially submerged cap. The resulting wine is fresh and elegant, with a vibrant aromatic profile underpinned by velvety tannins and a juicy almondy finish.
