Grenache and Dolcetto
While everyone else is out suggesting you stock up on Pinot noir for Thanksgiving I’d suggest two other alternatives.
Grenache, which has the easy drinking fruit profile many Pinot drinkers love, is packed with easy to love candied strawberry flavors that work very well with Thanksgiving’s relatively sweet menus.
Dolcetto, not actually sweet as the name suggests, dolce meaning sweet in Italian and Dolcetto the diminutive ie little sweet one. Instead Dolcetto can be fresh and zesty, but it’s generally a relative big wine with soft tannins and good acidity. Fruity if darker than Grenache but ideally suited to Thanksgiving menus that have a more savory bent.
