Four types of this DOCG are offered: one basic Dolcetto and three selections which, thanks to the vineyard location and to the soil composition, give wines with unique characteristics.
Sorì del Sot: this wine is obtained from a vineyard located in the middle-lower part of the hill, in a charming natural amphitheatre.
Sorì Autin Grand: these grapes come from a plot of land on the tip of the hill, with one of the best exposures in our vineyards.
Sorì del Sot “Vigna Autin Gross”:this vineyard has produced small bunches picked during a later harvest for over 60 years. The resulting wine has great structure and a high level of alcohol.
