Renato Ratti Colomb Dolcetto Alba Piemonte Italy 2009
Its color is ruby red with an abundance of violet reflections. An intense bouquet with trace scents of cherry and ripe plum. Balanced, fresh, rightly tannic, fragrant and lush, leaving a pleasantly bitter aftertaste. A wine for all tables, particularly suited for Italian-style appetizers, first courses and fresh cheeses.
Half way up the hill overlooking the main Barolo valley, along the first spurs of the neatly aligned vineyards, lies the Abbey of the Annunziata (Our Lady of the Annunciation), a priceless jewel of the 15th Century. Just as the good friars of centuries past produced wines from the grapes grown along the hollow below their abbey, a position of glory and grandeur, today, faithful to their same timeless wisdom, wines of incomparable quality are produced.
