Dolcetto d'Alba
One of the seven Dolcetto-focused DOC regions in Piedmont, Dolcetto d'Alba encompasses the Langhe hills around Alba, including 25 communes in the province of Cuneo. The region's sandy, tufa-rich soils are perfect for the Dolcetto grape, which thrives in drier climates.



Typically very floral, Dolcetto d'Alba is a dry, red wine with limited acidity. A light, subtle wine, Dolcetto d'Alba has been DOC-rated since 1974, and continues to impress consumers around the world.
