Food Pairings for Bonny Doon Vineyard Dolcetto Monterey County Ca' del Solo
Our 2006 is an examplar of “tough love”. Packed with stone fruit and berry flavors, yet balanced with a pungent earthy tones, which add a near harmonic convergence of soulful minerality to this at times too preternaturally fruity variety. Unlike the sweetly etheral Dulcinea in Don Quixote, our Dolcetto is charming and seductive, yet has the quijones to take on all manner of foods and flavors at the table. We recommend gently decanting prior to serving. Ca’ del Solo is the frontier outpost, Biodynamic® Estate vineyard of Bonny Doon Vineyard, dedicated to producing wines with a particular emphasis on the expression of terroir, or unique sense of place. Our winemaking is generally hands-off, respectful of the originality of the vineyard site. Hand-harvest and sorted, the ’06 Dolcetto expresses all the fruit, earth and crystalline mineral aspects Monterey County has to offer.
