Description

Tasty! Short and simply put. Its fruity and spicy taste is supported by a juicy appetizing acidity, and therefore one drinks easily more than one glass of it! The aromas of ripe, sweet fruits like plums and cherries combine with the scents of lilies, roses and herbs. A cheerful wine for jolly good times.

Grape variety

Dolcetto

The upstart from Piedmont

Dolcetto is translated as “the little sweet”, even though the wines that develop from it are almost exclusively dry. The name alludes to the low acidity of the berries. The Dolcetto comes from the northern Italian Piedmont, where it was already known in the 16th century. Since its grapes ripen early, vintners like to plant it at higher elevations. It is too cool there for the renowned Piedmontese Barbera and Nebbiolo varieties – their maturity period slips into autumn, when temperatures drop sharply. Wines from Dolcetto taste best young, no more than two to three years after harvest. Then they shine with their round, soft, fruity nature, and delicate notes of liquorice and almonds.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.
