Benevelli Piero "La Costa" Dolcetto d'Alba '17

Benevelli Piero's winery is in the Monforte d'Alba commune of Barolo, where Piero Benevelli started out with 5 hectares in 1978. Now, run by his son Massimo, vineyard production has grown close to 10 hectares, but still maintains its image as a traditional, small production winery. The majority of plantings can be found in the incredible Ravera cru.

The winery keeps its perspective with traditionalism in mind. Keeping it classic with 100% Piedmontese varietals really allows Benevelli to showcase what Monforte d'Alba is capable of, which is combining structural strength with great concentration and richness. Although this is in reference primarily to Barolo production, even with fresher styles like the Dolcetto, the complexity and concentration is still present.

This Dolcetto is the perfect wine for any occasion. Highly drinkable, easy to enjoy on its own or with a variety of food, preferably to wash down a slurp of pasta. The wine is perfumed with bright berries, both red and black fruits, classic violet tones with good weight yet soft tannins.
