A hard-edged, mineral-rich red from the tiny appellation of Dogliani in Piedmont, just outside the Barolo region. Its firm tannins make it a great foil for the rich dishes of the Piedmont area. The dolcetto is an earlier ripening grape than its big brothers from the Piedmont - the Barbera and Nebbiolo. As a result, growing the dolcetto makes for very efficient use of land and labor. It is planted on sites that cannot support the longer hangtime required for the Nebbiolo and can be picked by the same vineyard crew since it is harvested earlier. Dolcettos are delightful wines - light but not insubstantial. In fact, the strength of its tannins can often surprise the drinker given its otherwise light body. Like most traditional style wines, this one shines most when paired with foods. Simple pasta and meat dishes do just fine - even a nice pizza will pair well with this gem.
