Du Riva Dolcetto d`Ovada Superiore, Azienda Vitivinicola Luigi Tacchino 2014
The Tacchino family have been making wine for 3 generations in Castelletto d`Orba. Du Riva is their top example of the Dolcetto grape variety from the Dolcetto di Ovada Superiore DOCG appellation. Here they own 50 year old vines 300m altitude in south-east facing vineyards. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is then aged in new 225ltr French barriques with no expense spared. This is deep, concentrated, aromatic and built to age.
