Viberti Dolcetto d’Alba Superiore DOC

An extraordinary display of the Dolcetto varietal bursting with aromas of ripe red berries, particularly raspberries.  This medium-bodied red is perfect with everyday meals.  The wine matured in stainless steel tanks for 9-10 months.  It was bottled and aged an additional 3 months prior to release.  Consume within 3-5 years for maximum flavor expression.

The pure cherry core is enhanced by floral and spice notes in this tight, linear red. Firm, showing ample grip on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2015.

A cinnamon aroma introduces cherry and bitter almond in this solid Dolcetto, finishing on the austere side, with dusty tannins. Drink now through 2012.
