G.D. Vajra Dolcetto d'Alba Coste & Fossati

  • VARIETY: 100% Dolcetto

  • VINEYARD AND TERROIR: This wine owes its name to the two vineyards where fruit is sourced: Coste di Vergne and Fossati, both in the town of Barolo with altitudes ranging from 400 to 480 meters. Coste is facing southwest while Fossati faces southeast. Like the sides of a ship, they share the composition of the soil, characterized by Sant’Agata fossil marl with veins of the rare Messinian deposits.

  • HARVEST AND WINEMAKING: The harvest of Dolcetto Coste & Fossati® begins when the stalks of the grapes change color to red, usually in mid-September. A delicate fermentation of 20-25 days is followed by at least two racking procedures.

  • AGING: 8-12 months of aging in the cellar before bottling.
