Gamvs MMXXII Dolcetto d’Alba Superiore
Passion for wine, an indissoluble passion for the Mossio family. Valerio and Remo, supported by Michele, their grandson, are personally committed to produce Dolcetto d’Alba, Bricco Caramelli and Piano delli Perdoni; Barbera, Nebbiolo and Langhe Rosso, the result of a happy union between Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, “Gamvs”, Dolcetto d’Alba Superiore (premium quality) and “Le Margherite”, a passito (dessert) wine.
Mossio – the synonym of a hard working family, whose members on one hand have specific roles and on the other hand are committed towards the same goal: wine quality.
The Langa and Roero wine and food heritage, a knowledge conscious of the passing of time and seasons in autumn, is caused by the bouquet of wine and the flavor of the white truffle of Alba; in spring and summer the cooking innovates with appetizers made with vegetables, meat and the first courses are characterized by “tajarin” (home-made noodles) and “agnolotti del plin” (home-made stuffed pasta)…We don’t leave out the Fassone meat, the cheeses and also the desserts with their unmistakable taste of “Tonda e Gentile” (round and gentle) hazelnut from the Langhe.
We tasted: Gamus MMXXIII Dolcetto d’Alba Superiore 2013
The name of this wine is due to the recovery of a white marble slab. The colour is deep ruby red with violet reflections. The nose is intense with hints of plum, blackberry and red fruits on a spicy background. In the mouth is enveloping, soft and full, with a sweet finish but not too much, well balanced with tannins typical of the grape dolcetto. Ideal for dishes with meat game, ham and seasoned cheese.
