VITIGNO Dolcetto

PAIRING Aperitif, Meat, Cold cuts

The best of Dolcetto for Colombè, a red wine that comes from two different vineyards, both crucial for the cultivation of this grape: one located in Mango, a historic area near Barbaresco, and the other in Dogliani, the home of this native grape. Made from 100% Dolcetto grapes, Colombè is processed exclusively in steel to maintain the freshness of the fruit and that pleasant rusticity that has always distinguished Renato Ratti's wines, for a traditional wine, with a bare and raw flavour, simply delicious, a great classic of Piedmontese tradition.

Intense ruby red with violet hues, the nose shows a fine and extremely aromatic profile of jammy cherries and sweet spices, then raspberries and strawberries with hints of mown grass. The taste is caressing, very pleasant in body and vigour, with a subtle but present tannin and a pleasant finish in which the fruit returns, unceasingly.

The perfect wine for cured meats, for a mushroom risotto but also with a stew, it is exquisite with sausages.

The Winery

Oenologist, historian, scholar, Renato Ratti, in 1971, was a great innovator of Barolo and one of the main architects of the cultural (and technical) revolution in the world of Piedmontese wine: the first man to vinify a Barolo from a single vine variety and the first to create the 'Carta del Barolo', a classification of the best Cru in the area in Burgundian style (it was 1976). The Italian wine world owes much to him, especially his ability to have intuited the symbiotic relationship between a given sub-zone, the vintage and the ageing process, indispensable elements for granting soft, elegant and, above all, long-lived red wines. He loved to say of himself that he experienced first-hand every phase of the production of his wines, and it is admirable the love and dedication with which successive generations continue to carry on the tradition of Renato Ratti, that signature that is synonymous with high standards across the entire range, even in the more 'simple' and less emblazoned expressions, such as Dolcetto and Barbera d'Alba. Tasting these wines is like looking out over a panorama that directly overlooks the oldest and most precious hills of La Morra, a panorama that will be hard to forget...
