Alessandro Veglio Dolcetto

Alessandro Veglio – getting better year after year

It’s always a pleasure to drink the wines of Alessandro Veglio, as you can pretty much taste the hard work and genuine effort he puts into his “grape juice”! Dolcetto is a very “basic” wine, but it’s one of my favorites. The one Alessandro Veglio makes is no exception. Balanced, well rounded, fresh, easy to drink: just as a good dolcetto should be! Alessandro started making wine fairly recently, and in my opinion his wines are getting better and better. Not that they were not good before. I opened a 2008 Barolo Gattera and it was absolutely fantastic! Way to go Ale!
