Quick Overview

50+ harvests, 40 years of wine making, 3 varietals: Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. 2 territories together as Langa and Roero tell the story of Sandrone's 6 red wines, which are expressions of its intuitions, careful observations and continuous thinking. Sandrone has always been driven by a single overriding and thriving ambition: to discover new nuances in each harvest. Each grape gathering has its own harmony, and each wine a story in itself.


Dolcetto d’Alba - Pleasant simplicity
Langa style. Between the Dolcetto vine and the Langa hills there is a pact that has lasted for centuries. Not only because the grape was born on these hills on the right bank of the Tanaro river. Above all, for the strong bond that has endured between this grape variety and its wine and the people who live in these areas. If it is common to look at the hills and track in their crests and slopes the well-defined rows of Dolcetto during the four seasons of the year, it is just as common to look at the wineglasses set on the tables in the houses of the region and find in them the colors and fragrant aromas of youthful Dolcetto d'Alba.

Tasting notes:
The 2019 was a particularly difficult growing season for the fickle and sensitive Dolcetto grape; the weather events of the 5 September had negative effects for vines planted in all but the best expositions.

It has began to be picked about the 13 September and brought in a normal crop of excellent quality. The nose offers attractive aromas of juicy black fruits, spices and underbrush. The palate is refreshing and mouth-filling with good black plum fruit, raspberry and herbal notes. The finish is fresh and lively with nice, soft tannins giving some structure.

This is an excellent wine for a wide variety of matchings, best suited to simple everyday dishes that require a well-made, eminently drinkable accompaniment.
