2011 Dolcetto

$24.00

Typically grown in the steep, cooler climates of northern Italy, our Dolcetto has found a similar home here in the Sierra Foothills. This incredibly smooth but intense wine reflects notes of plum and blackberry. Seasoned in french Oak allocated specifically to this varietal, it has a persuasive softness that highlights the more subtle characteristics of the vintage, such as an inherent fruit fowardness. The low acidity and tannic composure reflect the “Old World” style, living up to its affectionate nick-name: “The shy Italian.” Alc 12.9%
