Dolcetto

Red vine variety, probably natural to Piedmont and one of the most typical, cultivated to various extents more or less all over the region. Its mysterious origins can be traced to random seeding in recesses of the hill. The earliest documented information dates back to the late 1700s with cultivations seen in the areas of Acqui, Valenza and Alessandria but it was considered a variety only able to produce low alcohol wine, to be drunk young, within a year. It was cultivated to make a dry, slightly sweet wine. Its name derives from the unique sweetness of its pulp, but the wine obtained is definitely dry. It stands out for its intense ruby red colour and winey, clearly fruity bouquet, which is at times slightly almond, pleasant, with a good body and harmonic structure.
