This wine is a prime example of a European grape variety finding an interesting and successful expression in the Southern hemisphere. Alpha Box and Dice's 'Dead Winemakers Society' is 100% made with Dolcetto grapes, whose native land is Piedmont, Italy. The wine is medium-bodied, and could benefit from being served slightly chilled. On the nose, there are notes of delicate herbs, fresh cracked black pepper, and sumptuous red cherries. On the palate, peppery notes evolve into spicy yet supple tannins that support the mouth-watering berry fruits and vibrant acidity.

The wine is basket pressed to seasoned barriques for 12 months, and aged in bottle for 12 months prior to release. It can be cellared for up to 10 years.

In the words of the winemakers themselves: 'The Dead Winemakers Society is our homage to those visionary individuals that carved their path in the wine industry before us. They were the crazy ones, the wild-eyed wine poets who had a deep respect for both the land they farmed and the process of guiding the fruit to bottle in the most thoughtful and composed manner possible. There have been many who have inspired us through their wines and philosophy – we have listened, learned and adapted the practices of their legacy to form our own.'

Alpha Box & Dice was formed in 2008 around a project to construct a different wine style to represent every letter of the alphabet. Each member of the ‘Alphabet of Wine’ has its own unique personality that fulfils a different purpose, all linked by a commitment to  minimal intervention and vegan-friendly methods. These are wines that truly have the capacity to inspire, delight and surprise!

Drink this wine alongside steak frites or margherita pizza.
