Roberto Sarotto is the seventh generation to lead this family-owned estate. Until his arrival at the helm, the family sold their grapes to cooperatives and other growers. From 1991, he has vinified all the estate’s grapes.
We are especially pleased with the Dolcetto because this was the wine that laid the foundations of the Sarotto family’s success; they used to ship it in bulk to England in the early 1900s!

The grapes are given a few hours maceration on the skins, and the wine remains on its lees for three to four months in stainless steel tanks.
