This is an organic wine with a ruby red colour and scents of intense violet. On the nose evident violet sensations and mature fruit. Structured in the mouth with intense fruit, dry, clean and a soft wrapping finish.

This Dolcetto comes from the vineyard "Calupo" in Rodello and is 460 meters above sea level. The vineyard is 4,85 hectares on hilly ground with marl calcareous and rocky soil and a South, South West exposure.

Giribaldi wines are a family affair, they are made by Mario Giribaldi, the third generation of the family. His wines are a reflection of the people who make it, those who work in the vineyard under the all-day sun, or in the cold winter snow. Those who work all day and night in the winery during the harvest to watch the wine slowly transform, those who dress the bottle and look after its image, those who are ambassadors and pass on the passion of those who made it.

The Giribaldi winery began at the beginning of the 20th century and has been producing wines for three generations. In those days, times were hard, and agriculture was not only a means of income but also a real pride for those who loved their land even though it made them suffer so much. It was normal for them to make sacrifices for the land they were brought up on.

Piedmont, Italy

Piedmont is affected by a tug-of-war between two weather systems: the ice cold Alps and the warm Mediterranean temperature. This variation makes the whole area fill up with morning fog that slowly burns off during the day. This means the land higher up on the hills gets more sun. More sun = happy grapes = good wine. It's why Piedmont (or Piemonte) is considered to be Italy's best wine growing region.

Matteo Giribaldi, Azienda Agricola Mario Giribaldi

Today, thinking of the traditions and love for something alive like wine, I simply continue the work of my father and grandfather with the same passion and devotion. We are a family winery representing the third generation of the Giribaldi wine family, but above all, because we are one big family made up of 10 people, who every day proudly work all together, and share the same passion.

Dolcetto

Meaning “little sweet one” in Italian, Dolcetto’s name often misleads many to think it’s a sweet wine. It’s not at all. Dolcetto is a dry red wine with major personality and, when made with care, can be a dazzling wine. Dolcetto originates from Monferrato known for its rolling hills, truffles, and wine.

It has a balanced and friendly character, firm tannins, and an easy-going acidity that makes very drinkable wines.
