Nearly opaque brown brick red color. Fruity, earthy aromas and flavors of ripe blueberries, leather, tea leaves, and clay with a slightly chewy, tangy, dry full body and a warming, distinctive, brisk finish with leafy tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor.

While Piedmont is home to a number of powerful reds made from the Nebbiolo grape, Dolcetto is one of the region’s most charming everyday reds. The grape’s name literally means “little sweet one,” which has not helped sales, as many believe it to be a sweet red wine. However it is a dry red; the sweet terminology refers to the young, ripe fruit, with flavors of black raspberry and cranberry that burst forth in the aromas and on the palate. Tannins are moderate, so this is a medium-bodied red to be enjoyed in its youth, generally from two to four years, although a few examples can drink well for a decade, especially those from the Dogliani area.

Dolcetto is best paired with lighter pastas, salumi, chicken in a red wine preparation as well as lighter pork and veal dishes.
