Dario Sciolla can rely on the increasingly valuable support of his daughters Chiara and Irene in running this small and reliable business, which is located at the border of the busiest routes crossed by the wine passionates. Actually the Bastia Mondovì area is very beautiful and definitely less anthropized than other bordering wine areas: there are many woods, lawns and numerous hazelnuts fields, which Sciolla cultivates as well.
Basically, between the Dogliani and the Langhe Monregalesi area, the Bastia Mondovì area is known since ages as area vocated to the dolcetto vine, which in fact is the main wine among the Sciolla’s offer. Here the altitude – around 500 meters – and the ventilation favor the grapes’ health, while the light and calcareous soil are ideal to produce well structured but elegant wines.
A good crescendo of Dolcettos, sold at very competitive prices, starting from the simple Langhe Dolcetto 2014, winy and typical, with a herbaceous vein which never turns into bitter. The Dogliani 2014 offers notable cleannes and precision of the aromas, in the bouquet and in the taste, which give sweet pulp and good juiciness. The Dogliani Sup. Bricco San Bernardo 2011 is a product of a warmer year, and shows the rich and mature fruit, but preserves freshness and has a notable and persistence in the spicy end. The two Langhe Rosso are both blends of dolcetto and merlot: the Langhe Rosso Diavolisanti 2011 is round, with a full and sweet fruit; the Langhe Rosso Superboum 2011 has weight and vivacity. Agreeable the Langhe Bianco Livor 2014.
