SKU: 17 Dolcetto

Dolcetto is one of the principal grapes grown in the Piedmont region of Italy and a favorite there among both winemakers and consumers. It is an “early to market” red wine which is immediately drinkable upon release and thought of almost like “comfort wine”.  Amiable in the vineyard, easy to grow yet still imparting a sense of place in the resulting wine, Dolcetto thrives in the coastal conditions of Santa Barbara County.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The nose is youthful and bright, full of red fruit and raspberries. On the palate, notes of hard candy, with a lively Jolly Rancher-like cherry flavor. Mid-palate notes of sage and earthy flavors of porcini mushroom. The characteristics of Dolcetto shine through: a graceful balance of acidity and light tannins, alongside a youthful exuberance and freshness that make the varietal so versatile at the table.
Food Pairing Notes
Similar in weight to your favorite Pinot Noir, Dolcetto pairs well with antipasti, pastas with meat sauces, grilled fish, roasted poultry, and of course...pizza! Pour a glass and enjoy during kitchen meal prep, or on the patio while grilling.
