“Dolcetto” translates to “little sweet one” – not because it is a sweet wine (it is perfectly dry) but because it is so easy to work with—in the vineyard, in the cellar and in the glass. Our 2014 vintage captures the varietal’s easygoing nature, with a brilliant ruby-red color in the glass, inviting a first sip.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The nose is youthful and bright, full of red and Bing cherries. On the palate, notes of hard candy, with a lively Jolly Rancher-like cherry flavor. Mid-palate notes of cardamom, with a pleasurable, slightly herbal finish, with a trace of basil. 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.
