AMICI, the Dolcetto is since ever the “friend’s wine” (Amici, the Italian word for friends), to drink a glass together after a working day while sharing the news of the village and of the neighbors.
Wine with an intense ruby red colour. On the nose it shows notes of cherries and red berries. The taste is full bodied and fruity, with delicate mineral traces and medium integrated tannins. Ample and persistent finish
