Emilio Vada - Dolcetto D'Alba 2018
Dolcetto translates to 'little sweet one’ so this wine has a slight sweet taste but isn’t a sweet wine by any stretch of the imagination. Rounded with plenty of dark fruits and some wonderful stewed cherry flavours, this wine is elegant and super enjoyable whether for hearty dinner or relaxed pizza on a Saturday night.
Emilio Vada’s winery is nestled among the picturesque vineyards of the softly rolling hills near Coazzolo, a small town that lies in an area that has been made part of the UNESCO heritage. Coazzolo lies just where the Langhe, land of the Nebbiolo, becomes the Monferrato, land famous for the Moscato D’Asti wine. Due to this very special location, Cascina Emilio Vada Farm produces Moscato d'Asti, as well as Dolcetto d'Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo and Barbera d’Asti. The best exposed lands of these hills have been jealously guarded and handed down from generation to generation. The vineyards require constant and precise care, and a profound understanding and respect for Nature's variable ways.
