Origins and production

Sergio Cerutti selects his Dolcetto - a vine, and a wine, with deep roots in the hills and their inhabitants - at Treiso, in the heart of the Langa. Soft pressing eliminates the stems and is followed by fermentation of the must in contact with the skins at a constant temperature (22°C.) for 6-7 days. After racking, the wine is matured in large tanks for 7-8 months, and is then bottled and aged in the cellars for 5-6 months before reaching the consumer.
Each year Cà du Ciuvin produces 3,000 bottles.


Its fragrant tones are already evident in its colour: an impeccable ruby-red, made younger by violet highlights. Its fruity, intense nose features marasca cherries, followed by plums and apples. It has a dry, full-bodied, flavoursome taste with an aftertaste recalling bitter almonds.


Full, round-bowled tulip glasses are ideal for appreciating Dolcetto d'Alba's qualities at a temperature of 16-18°C. This wine goes well throughout a meal, although it is at its very best with starters and first courses.
