Italy > Piedmont > Dolcetto d'Alba

Sourced from various hillside vineyards within the Alba DOC, Brezza's Dolcetto D'Alba possesses ripe and complex fruit. This elegantly proportioned and balanced Dolcetto screams for light meat, pasta dishes, and pizza.

Brezza was founded in 1885 making it one of the very first commercially available Barolos. The family link to this region is as strong as they come. Giuseppe Rinaldi is the cousin of Bartolo Mascarello who is the cousin to the Brezza family. Bartolo was Enzo’s godfather. Like his cousins, Enzo produces traditional-style Barolo, wines of great finesse showing the characteristics of his vineyards’ soils.

Piedmont is the most "Frenchified" of all Italian wine regions. The long valleys of the Alpine foothills lead to easier travel to France's southern coast and inland than to the rest of Italy. It is perhaps for this reason that the Piedmontese have long practiced the most refined wine traditions of any Italian region. Terroir-based wisdom trickled down from early French masters (monks, typically) to this area.
Known mostly for their reds (but producing some excellent whites,) from the early ripening Dolcetto grape to the lofty, deep reds of Barolo and Barbaresco crafted from the Nebbiolo grape, these wines are clearly crafted using centuries of terroir-based winemaking.
