Piero Benevelli

2015 Dolcetto d’Alba “La Costa” Piero Benevelli - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $17.00

Right outside the picturesque hilltop village of Monforte d’Alba, Massimo Benevelli is humbly carrying on the family winemaking tradition initiated by his father, Piero, in the 1970s. With some of the top vineyard holdings in Monforte—most notably a sizeable plot within the Ravera cru, from which he produces the estate’s flagship Barolo—Massimo is quietly crafting ultra-traditional wines that embody all the best attributes of Piedmont’s stunning Langhe hills. In addition to Nebbiolo, he farms Barbera and Dolcetto, creating delicious everyday reds that shine at table. His plump, juicy Dolcetto is soft and full with just the right touch of tannins providing the structure needed to go with the region’s hearty traditional cuisine. In fact, Massimo’s sister runs a great trattoria adjacent to the winery where you are likely to see bottles of Dolcetto on each table—exactly what you need to wash down local specialties like carne cruda, vitello tonnato, and agnolotti del plin. –Anthony Lynch
