Agricola Molino Dolcetto d'Alba Le Querce
A ripe and dark dolcetto here, with the variety's inherent angular tannins on display, firmed up by a touch of residual carbon dioxide. Fruit tends towards the oxidative, dried/raisined end of the spectrum. It's fleshy and full to be sure on the palate, with very good depth and concentration overall, almost chewy. Lots of wine here for the money, if not particular finesse or sophistication, but more immediately satisfying density.
Quercia in Italian means Oak. We focused on the tree itself, which not only gives the name to the wine because the grape (Dolcetto) grows near these trees, but also because its tannins have a very close relationship with the oak. More than showing the tree itself, we wanted to go further more, in its center. We collect images of three sections and we illustrate them by synthesizing the lines. Finally, we join some of them with the 4 points, that represent, the four elements. Nothing is left to chance.
The Ausario hill is dedicated to Dolcetto as well. The eastern and southern slopes are cultivated with grapes for Dolcetto d’Alba, a modern and young wine which is characterized by cherry and sweet almond notes in the perfume and in the taste.
Intense ruby red. Persistent and fruity nose with notes of marasca cherries, rose and tobacco. The taste is full-bodied and balanced, the finish with almond notes highlights the freshness of this wine.
