Tasting Note

Displays lovely cherry, berry and floral flavours, with an earthy, rustic note. Mouthwatering acidity and the agreeably soft and supple nature makes this a benchmark Dolcetto.

This wine is from 4.5ha of land close to the Conterno Fantino winery. At just under 600m a.s.l. the vineyard is high for the Barolo region and average slope is consequently steep, at 25%. The composition of the soil is predominantly sandy (57%) which is ideal for the production of perfumed, floral Dolcetto with an attractive acid structure. The average age of the vines is 15 years, and over recent seasons quality has been improved through top grafting with small-berried, loose-bunched clones. Yields are low for Dolcetto, at slightly over 50 hl/ha. Harvest is generally in the second half of September. After a brief maceration on the skins, the Dolcetto spends 8 months in stainless steel vats prior to bottling.


  • Very pure, long and serious Dolcetto with the variety's archetypal vinosity and dark fruit perfume. It has a lingering finish with repeating floral nuances. A knockout example.

  • From the excellent Barolo producer Conterno Fantino: Dolcetto d’Alba Bricco Bastia is superbly uplifting.
