Description

Rustic Dolcetto from the Valle Unite cooperative in Piedmont, northern Italy. Think earthy dark cherry chocolate. 

Fermented in cement before being transferred to old barrels to soften and mature. Needs a little breathing space before joining the party.

In southeast Piemonte, Valli Unite may be Italy’s only natural wine cooperative, where vineyards lie amid beehives, farm animals, orchards, and truffle filled woodlands. Valli Unite, was founded in 1981 as a certified organic cooperative of work in Costa Vescovato, from the strong determination of 3 indigenous young farmers to resist the abandonment of land and stay in agriculture, joined very soon from people of different cultures, experience and professional skills, enabling a different lifestyle , where income is not the main value.

Valli Unite has grown to become a group of 35 people, working 100 hectares, 25 in the vineyard the rest fields, foraging , farming cereals, vegetable gardens and forests .Wine making is the main economy branch with deep farmering roots, each harvest bringing experience and new-found knowledge.
