E. Pira E Figli Dolcetto D'Alba DOC

The modest tannins and elegant structure typical of this grape variety make Dolcetto d’Alba an ideal “everyday wine,” enjoyable without being overwhelming. Ruby red in color with bright violet reflections, this wine is bursting with fresh fruit like Marasca cherries, wild strawberries and small red fruit on the nose. It’s particularly enjoyable slightly chilled on a warm summer day.


Wine Advocate on 2017 vintage

This is a fruity, dark and exuberant expression of one of Piedmont's most food-friendly grapes. The 2017 Dolcetto d'Alba opens to soft richness and fruity succulence, with dried blackberry aromas


Vinous Media on 2016 vintage

The 2016 Dolcetto d'Alba is a tasty, straightforward wine with good varietal character. Plum, black cherry, lavender and spice all flesh out in this succulent, mid-weight Dolcetto.


Wine Spectator on 2015 vintage

Though rich and concentrated, this red is sleek, courtesy of the vivid acidity. Black cherry, blackberry and cocoa flavors prevail. Firm tannins provide grip. This should pair well with salumi and antipasti. Drink now though 2022. 1,500 cases made.


Vinous Media on 2012 vintage

The 2012 Dolcetto d'Alba is impeccable. Mid-weight, gracious and beautiful perfumed, the 2012 impresses for its silky texture and exceptional overall balance. Hints of violet, cloves and mint add complexity to the dark fruit in this super-classic drop- dead gorgeous Dolcetto from Chiara Boschis.
