Ovada Steira 2016, Rocco di Carpeneto
In local dialect “steira” means star – and this natural wine made from Dolcetto is one indeed. The grapes come from a single vineyard that is over 40 years old and the juice ferments using natural yeast.
It is a beautiful ruby red, has aromas
of cherry and raspberry, combined with intriguing balsamic notes and bay leaves.
On the palate it is dry and the time spent in the barrel has added a softness, finesse and complexity balanced with integrated acidity and juiciness.
This a great food wine!
"Wine without a story is just a fruit juice with alcohol" .... so below you'll find a video of the winemaker.
Don't forgot to turn on English subtitles.
