GARABEI – Dolcetto di Diano D’Alba DOCG SUPERIORE 2020

COD: 65,06 Categorie: , Tag: , , ,


“Garabei” is the name that indicates the estate’s oldest vineyard, situated within the Additional Geographic Mention (MGA) Sorì dei Crava. The vineyard was planted in 1968, the year the estate was established. Vines that are over fifty years old. This is undoubtedly our most prestigious vineyard, Garabei has excellent potential for ageing.
Pairings:  Recommended with aged hams, hard cheeses, filled pasta, grilled vegetables and light main courses.

Grape:  100% Dolcetto.
Vinification:  Destemming of the grapes selected in the vineyard. Vinification in steel tanks; 9-12 days’ maceration. Spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation in concrete tanks and cold tartaric stabilisation in stainless steel tanks.
AGEING: It rests in concrete tanks until the summer after harvest, being racked several times to encourage natural settling and stabilisation. The wine is bottled in August and ages for six months before being released onto the market.
Color: Deep ruby red with the typical violet highlights   of Dolcetto di Diano d’Alba.
Scent: Liqueur cherries, wild sour cherries and red fruits.
Flavour:   Potent yet elegant, Garabei has very tight and enveloping tannins. The wine’s good acidity preserves the taste and sustains the very smooth and persistent finish. As it ages, it tends to lose the violet highlights and is enriched with brushwood and earthy notes. It evolves perfectly during the five years after harvest, continuing to age beautifully for over 10 years in the best vintages.
