Mentioned for the first time in an official ordinance of the municipality of Dogliani in 1593, Dolcetto is a Piedmontese red grape variety originating in Monferrato and widespread in the Langhe and Tortona areas, but also in the regions of Liguria and Lombardy. It produces a pleasantly tannic red wine ideal for meals, with contained freshness and a characteristic dry taste of cherries, flowers and bitter almonds, in spite of its name. Its name may in fact derive from the soft, fruity flavour of its grapes, or from the low hillsides locally known as 'duset', but what is certain is that the red wine obtained is always dry and drinkable, and often slightly bitterish. Dogliani, Ovada and Diano d'Alba DOCG, as well as Acqui, Alba and Asti DOC: depending on the area of production, it can assume different names and characteristics, but it always confirms itself as a great and inseparable companion on the table and in everyday life.
Classic red wine from the Langhe region, simple and perfect to drink every day. Medium intensity and structure with notes of red fruits
