DOLCETTO D'ALBA GRASSO
Style: MEDIUM BODIED RED
Main characteristic: DEEP & CRUNCHY
Dolcetto is widely enjoyed in Piemonte, but often misunderstood elsewhere. I think it's a wine for everyday drinking. That's not to say it's boring, rather that it's a wine you will want to drink every day! With its dark fruit and good tannins, this fine example from one of our favourite wineries shows what it can be when handled with skill and care. 2017 was a hot vintage, and other wines may risk over ripeness and jam. The heat really helped this Dolcetto along though, with the fruit rising to the challenge set by those tannins, resulting in a very versatile and well balanced wine.
