'Vigna Cristina' 
Dolcetto Diano d'Alba DOCG

Just south of Piedmont's wine capital of Alba, the small commune of Diano d'Alba is locally recognized as the prime locale for the production of Dolcetto. Its gently rolling hills are covered almost exclusively with this varietal. This wine drinks more like great Cru Beaujolais of Morgon than any other Dolcettos we've encountered. It has more breadth and depth with considerable fruit. The tannins are certainly noticeable and this is a fundamental characteristic that is often neglected in the overcropped expressions.
