Dolcetto d'Alba Sarroco 2022

Although Dolcetto means "little sweet one" in Italian, it does not translate to sweet wines. Fresh, fruity and slightly earthy. Notes of blackberry and raspberry on the palate. Dry with moderate acidity.

A versatile pairing wine. Try with pastas, risotto or roasted chicken.
