Cascina degli Ulivi, Bellotti Rosso, 2016, 750ml
50% Barbera/50% Dolcetto (a strain of it called Nibio). The fruit is destemmed, crushed and spontaneously co-fermented in old barrels with a maceration of about 3 weeks.
De Forville, Dolcetto D' Alba, 2018 750 ml
Flavors of blackberry, plum, violets and a hint of earth. It spends a brief amount of time in large oak barrels to soften the grip and add a hint of toasted almond. It's a great compliment to rich meats, and roasted vegetables.
