In a Nutshell
This is a rich, intensely fruity style of Dolcetto, vibrant and fresh with unusual depth for the variety.
Intense aromas of bright redcurrants, classic bitter cherry, perfumed violets and a hint of almond. A juicy, richly fruity style of red with luscious red berry fruit and notes of mocha - vibrant yet balanced acidity, and a generous finish.
The Monte Aribaldo estate, only 2 km from Martinenga, is on the hill of Monte Aribaldo in the commune of Treiso d'Alba. On the summit you can see the Villa Giulia Grésy, the 19th Century hunting lodge of the family. The vineyard extends along the hill with a mixed terrain of calcareous and volcanic soil, with an average altitude of 360 metres. The varietals produced here are Dolcetto d'Alba, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc - with the majority being Dolcetto. Vinification on skins, and maceration with floating cap at a controlled temperature of about 26° C. Automatic pumping over of the must three times a day. The wine is racked off before the fermentation process has been carried out completely. Malolactic fermentation takes place after completion of alcoholic fermentation.
