Marcarini Dolcetto d’Alba “Boschi di Berri” DOC
100% Dolcetto. Marcarini Dolcetto d’Alba “Boschi di Berri” DOC has an intense, ample, and persistent bouquet of violets and raspberries. A silky-textured palate, almost velvety, reminiscent of ripe cherries and red currant. Extremely appealing, structured, and balanced.
“Classic is a keyword in the Marcarini philosophy. Ideally poised between traditional and modern, the wines are characterized by both a voluptuous, embracing style and the superb longevity and blockbuster structure of Piedmont’s best.”
