Grape: Dolcetto d'Alba 100%.
Yearly production: 5000 bottles.
Colour: Ruby red with violet nuance.
Aroma: Intense vinous fragrance with fresh fruit aromas.

Behind the label: The name Olmiolo comes from the Elm tree, Olmo in Italian, and it was the wood used to keep up the vine in the vineyard.
Producer: Glicine, Marcorino, Curra, are reminiscent of this small winery that took roots in 1980, named “del Glicine”, as a tribute to a century-old wisteria located in the garden. They began producing for enjoyment in small quantities with both successes and disappointment. Slowly the past time grew into business facilitated by the existing unique 17th century cellar, a great example of Piedmontese Baroque kept in perfect condition. The silence, the darkness, the moistness, and the coolness are ideal for storage and ageing wines.
