Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba 'Sorì Santa Lucia'

Paolo Olivero is a small farmer in the little hilltop village of Diano d’Alba, just north of Barolo. He farms 5 hectares of vines and 6 hectares of hazelnut trees. The Olivero family has produced wine on their property for four generations, but it wasn’t until after Paolo finished oenology school that he returned home to lead the family domaine and bottle their wines.  The word “sorì” in the local dialect refers to a hilltop area with good sun exposure that produces great wine. The excellent sun exposure and use of native yeasts makes his Dolcetto bigger and richer than most. This is a straightforward wine that is a great ambassador for this grape. Chocolate covered cherries and nuts galore!

Our wines are often more subtle and earthy than the fruit-bombs that you find on most supermarket shelves but we believe that once you unlock their charms you will be hooked for life. And since these Old World wines were made on smaller vineyards that have existed for generations they also offer quite a great bang for the buck. There are some amazing New World wines out there but they tend to cost a great deal more than we want to charge our customers. We want to be the wine portal for people of all ages and incomes who are new to wine and want to explore without breaking the bank.
