The Dogliani DOCG is home to some of the greatest Dolcetto vineyards in Piemonte, and this appellation accounts for the majority of the estate’s 12 hectares under vine. The oldest Dolcetto vines were planted in 1936, while the youngest date back to 1978. The finest sources are destined for the flagship “San Fereolo” cuvee. The 7-year wait from harvest to release reflects the importance of the “San Fereolo” to Nicoletta Bocca, who carefully tends the wine through its 3 years in large barrel before a 3-4 year hibernation in the bottle cellar. This wine is one of the staples of the appellation.
