Dolcetto

 

Name of varietal: Dolcetto
 
Common synonyms: Beaina, Bignola, Bignonina, Cassolo, Dolcetta, Dolsin, Douce Noir, Nibio, Orneasco, Uva d’Acqui, Uva del Monferrato, Uva di Ovada, Uva di Roccagrimalda
 
Parentage of the grape: Indigenous to Piedmont, Italy
 
History of the grape: The name means “little sweet one” in Italian. Dolcetto, along with Barbera and Nebbiolo is one of the prized grapes of the Piedmont region in Italy, with evidence that it has been growing there for many centuries. It had been traditionally produced as a light (both in color and weight) table wine. More recently the trend is for bolder versions made from grapes that have been given a longer hang time to amplify their power and ageworthiness, but this also results in raising its alcohol levels. For this reason, Dolcetto can now be found in the traditional light style as well as big concentrated styles. Wines labeled “Superiore” are often a good tip that these are older Read more »
