La Slina ‘Rocco Rosso’ Dolcetto Di Ovada 2011

rocco

Friendly and versatile at the table, a great value with bright fruit and a clean finish that keeps you reaching for more.

Estate: La Slina is a small family vineyard located in the ancient town of Castelletto d’Orba in Piedmont, northwest Italy. Brothers Giorgio and Mario Cichero have garnered much praise for their wines, and have been honored with numerous “regional awards”.

Winemaking: Vinified and aged in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour with aromas of cherry, strawberry and hints of white pepper. Vibrant strawberry and tart cherry flavours are upheld by hints of earth, spice along with light tannins on the clean, dry finish. [Put in the fridge about 15 minutes before pouring, the fruit will really pop!]
