Other Reds  |  Italy


Ground shipping included on orders of 6 bottles or more!

Manzone grows this dolcetto on their two flagship sites in the Monforte d’Alba – “Castelletto” and “Gramolere”, where they make their top Barolos. This fun, easy sipping, and deeply flavored red is a perennial favorite for all occasions. Experience structured tones of blackberries and violet with a juicy undercurrent of red currants and raspberries. The wine is the perfect accompaniment to all things summer – to be served with cheese and charcuterie, roast chicken dishes and plenty of al fresco fun!

Manzone’s dolcetto production is very limited, as they only make a few thousand bottles to start with, and you can bet they keep a fair bit for themselves as their private house table wine. Only about 20 cases available, so do yourself a solid and grab yours quickly!

About the Producer

A lot of today's famous Barolo producers started making wine when it became the fashionable thing to do in the late 70s and 80s. Not Manzone. It all began in 1925 when Manzone Giovanni bought the "Preve Ciabot" (the priest's house) and began to use grapes from the Castelletto vineyard. In the following years they acquired important vineyards "Castelletto" and "Gramolere", two of the best cru of Monforte d'Alba. Today they have six generations of winemaking history in the books and Giovanni Manzone still runs the show. His son Mauro stepped in to help in 2005 and his daughter Mirella joined in 2012. Both graduated from the historic Alba School of Enology.
