San Fereolo

San Fereolo Dogliani 2013

The most important wine of the estate, the Dolcetto is sourced from parcels found in prime positions, as well as the oldest vines of the estate. The 7-year wait from harvest to release reflects the importance of the “San Fereolo” to winemaker Nicoletta Bocco, who carefully tends the wine through its 3 years in large barrel before a 3-4 year hibernation in the bottle cellar. Fresh mineral notes, mint, licorice, and savory elements backed by mouthwatering freshness. Red fruit on the nose, blackberry, raspberry, pomegranate and red plum, followed by notes that remind us of star anise, ink, and a light toasty aroma. In the mouth, it's broad and complex, well rounded, and wrapped in fruity freshness. Tannins, which are not overwhelming, blend with an elegant and silky texture, ending with a slightly mineral finish. Decant for best results!

San Fereolo

Nicoletta Bocca has been the driving force at San Fereolo since she acquired the property in 1992, during which time she has mastered the terroir of her Valdibà subzone and completed the conversion to certified biodynamic. Today, the estate is renown for dedication to the terroir of Dogliani, which is located immediately south of Barolo in the Langhe. The Dogliani DOCG is home to some of the greatest Dolcetto vineyards in the 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.
