This Dolcetto is a full-bodied red with hearty aromatics and a generous palate of dark fruit.
Variety: 100% Dolcetto
Vineyard: Wildseed Farms
Location: Texas Hill Country, TX
Production: 190 cases
Feral, flinty, meaty component on aromatics that gives way to big red fruit. Smells like a sidewalk covered in ripe split plums.
Fruit was harvested in 2 picks; The earlier pick was hand harvested and 100% whole cluster fermented in macrobins and the latter pick was destemmed and fermented in concrete. This wine is roughly a 50/50 blend of the two lots. Half was aged in concrete and the other half in neutral French oak barrels.
Wildseed Farms consists of sandy clay loam soil.
