Regular price £11.99

Giovanni Manzone's among the new wave of Piemonte producers: 'The Innovators'. At his 'azienda', spread across Serralunga d'Alba, Sinio and Roddino, he insists on all vineyard operations and picking being carried out by hand, guaranteeing crops one-third less than the average and richly-concentrated grapes. Youthfully deep, vivid purple Dolcetto with juicy, silky flavours of sloes and other wild hedgerow fruits. Try it with 'zampone' (pigs' trotters). Contains Sulphites.

Tasting Note: Youthfully deep, vivid purple Dolcetto with juicy, silky flavours of sloes and other wild hedgerow fruits.
