ITALY’S LITTLE SECRET
Dolcetto is grown in northern Italy, with only small plantings found outside of the country. Though not as famous as other northern Italian varietals such as superstars Nebbiolo and Barbera, Dolcetto is well-known and widely enjoyed across the country. A delicious red wine that is generally consumed young, Dolcetto is one of Italy’s classic food wines and a staple at the dinner table.
Juicy black cherry and blackberry flavours with notes of vanilla, violet, licorice and spice. Rich and round with a characteristic pleasant bitter note on the finish, reminiscent of almond.
Dolcetto is a versatile food wine and traditional Italian foods are a great place to start. It’s perfect with antipasto, pasta with mushroom or meat sauce, pizza and roasted chicken.
