Cantina Clavesana is a large co-operative based in a small town of the same name. They are a case in point that you don’t have to be small or boutique or artisan (The ‘in’ word for the same thing) to produce great wine. What you do need to be is good, and Clavesana are better than good at producing Dolcetto. The grapes for this one all come from Dogliani DOCG which was promoted to DOCG status in 2005. It is a delicious example of soft, fragrant and supple Dolcetto with characteristic nutty notes on the finish.
