This Russian River Valley Dolcetto was aged for 20 months on American Oak (30% New) and has classic flavors of this famous Italian varietal from the Piedmont region. Despite the literal translation of its name to be little sweetie (like a small piece of candy); this wine is completely dry and has great acids and bright fruit flavors that make it an extraordinary versatile wine. It is great with a wide range of foods and is also wonderful to enjoy on its own. We only produced 191 cases of the 2018 Dolcetto. Remember to take the time to enjoy family and wine. Enjoy !!
