Localization: Piedmont, Italy
Tasting Notes: Dolcetto Di Dogliani "Sori Dij But" Anna Maria Abbona is a classic Piedmont Dolcetto that is lively and bright. There has been no aging in oak in order to preserve the fresh fruit characters.
The Domain: Anna Maria Abbona returned to Dogliani with her husband Franco Schellino and decided to revive the old vines planted by her grandfather Angelo. They also extended their vines and modernized the cellars focussing on only producing high-quality wines.
Anna Maria’s vineyard is the highest elevation in all of Dogliani. The original plantings, the work of Anna Maria’s grandfather in the 1930s are still being utilized today, producing incredibly beautiful dark-fruited gems with wonderful natural acidity thanks to the high elevation and cool, breezy nights.
