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 »
