Additional Information on Albino Rocca Dolcetto D'alba Vignalunga 2013

Winery: Albino Rocca

Varietal: Dolcetto

There are few grape varietals in the world which hold such intense and interesting flavors as the Dolcetto. These grapes have been grown for centuries in their native Italy, and have also had much success in the New World, where they are equally prized for their unique characteristics. These black grapes have the ability to produce strongly colored red wines, packed full of fascinating flavors which pair well with a wide variety of foods. Most commonly, Dolcetto varietal grapes produce wines which carry the flavors of liquorice, prune and black cherries, with a bitter finish reminiscent of almonds. They strong tannins and light acidity result in interesting wines which are at once large in the mouth, and yet relatively light and drinkable, perfect for those looking for something a little different from their red wines.

Region: Piedmont

The region of Piedmont in the cool, breezy north-western part of Italy is renowned throughout the world for high quality, flavorful and delicious red wines, and for the elegant and refined sparkling wines such as Asti which typify the area. The region is located at the foothills of the Alps, close to the French and Swiss borders, and benefits from some interesting micro-climates formed by its proximity to the mountain range. The key grapes for the fine red wines of Piedmont are Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera – all powerful varietals which are packed full of a range of fruit flavors and which have an affinity for oak making them ideal for aging When it comes to the sparkling Asti, wineries cultivate plenty of Moscato grapes, whose relative transparency make them ideal for expressing their terroir and providing some interesting flavors in the bottle.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
