Winexpert Dolcetto, Italian
Dolcetto is a black Italian wine grape variety widely grown in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy. The Italian word dolcetto means "little sweet one", but it is not certain that the name originally carried any reference to the grape’s sugar levels: it is possible that it derives from the name of the hills where the vine is cultivated. In any case the wines produced are nearly always dry. They can be tannic and fruity with moderate, or decidedly low, levels of acidity and are typically meant to be consumed within a few years after release
This limited release Italian wine kit has juicy black cherry and blackberry flavours with notes of vanilla, violet, liquorice and spice.
Rich and round with a characteristic pleasant bitter note on the finish, reminiscent of almond.
Italy's little secret Dolcetto is grown mostly exclusively in northern Italy, with only small plantings found outside the country.
You will be hard pressed to find this varietal of wine in the supermarkets, one to cellar!
Though not as famous as other northern varietals such as Nebbiolo and Barbera, it is well known and widely enjoyed across the country.
