Dolcetto is a name shared by both the appellation and the grape. Wines made for the Dolcetto variety at its best can even be compared to the noble Nebbiolo. Dolcetto grapes are easy to disposition, mature faster, are less acidic and very fruity. Wines can be drunk young without waiting for a special occasion. Italians are happy to open this bottle of wine at dinner because it goes well with any food and gives the drinkers an easy cheerful mood.
Translated from Italian Piemonte means ''the foot of the mountain" which is evident by the location of the region - it rests near the Alps which protect the region from cold winds. Nebbiolo is the king of grapes here - this exceptional variety is ideal for the production of wines with a high potential for aging like, for example, the world-famous fruity and balanced Barolo and Barbaresco.
