‘A completely different idea of Dolcetto, based on the stubborn belief that the expressive capacity of this grape goes well beyond the ordinary perception of Dolcetto as a young drinking wine. An idea that enhances the ‘Nebbiolo’ characters of this grape, by seeking out the challenges of the tannins of Dolcetto and its unusual aromas. Special attention is given to these grapes in the vineyards, while in the cellar we work to create a wine with the potential to age and to express itself, changing over time. It should be judged on a separate scale for its ability to astonish.’
