Ottavio Rube Rosso Dolcetto, cruchy, chocolate, cherry, rustic Biodynamic red. This great little Natural Dolcetto blend is from a fantastic coop whose entire production follows biodynamic principles. As with most Dolcetto, you get that lovely crunch acid, but fairly rich body which gives you a sort of fresh cherry and chocolate combination. It’s a little wild around the edge, but a fantastic entry level natural wine that’s extremely low in sulphur. A wine that simply goes with everything!

The co-operative Valli Unite was born over thirty years ago, when three young men merged their vineyards and began a project to preserve the old way of farming.

The old ways were combined with a very modern belief in organic farming as the way of the future, as part of the wider project known as ‘contraction’, involving reducing the human impact on the natural environment. Viticulture is non-invasive, using old-fashioned sickles and manures from their cattle as well as green fertilisers composed of clover and weeds. Cement vats are used to ferment the wines which are then transferred to old barrels to soften and mature.

    5.0

    Light, fresh and fruity, pairs well with anything, good to drink on its own as well

  2. J-whittler

    5.0

    Tasty, light, fresh as already said, but with a great finish so that the flavour is also deep.

    5.0

    I bought a collection of wines from the site and this was by far one of my favourite reds. It’s an easy drinker, yet still full bodied. I will definitely be ordering more of this again soon!

    Very pleasant and lively. Not particularly complex, but very nice indeed.

    Great weekday wine. Fresh but a bit funky, great value for money as it’s more complex than many more expensive
