Dolcetto 2018

Dolcetto 2018

This red Italian grape variety is traditionally used to make wine without any oak influence, in order to retain the fruity, light style meant to be enjoyed within a year or two of bottling. Our Osoyoos East Bench version of Dolcetto remains true to its traditional Italian origins, and delivers the easy drinking yet satisfying profile of dark cherries and prunes along with the characteristic bitter notes reminiscent of almonds.

Our Dolcetto is a medium-bodied wine with a deep purple colour. On the nose you will find notes of blueberries, pomegranate and violets. On the palate, blackberries take the lead along with notes of black cherries and almond, all typical of this grape variety.  The wine is easy drinking but with satisfying and complex flavour profile and long finish. We find that our Dolcetto has that certain (impossible to identify, and also impossible to resist) magical ingredient of ‘can I have another glass please’ - we always happily surrender.

Dolcetto is meant to be enjoyed at a young age and is best consumed over the next three years. It is also one of the few reds that can be chilled (not too much though!) which makes for a refreshing glass on a hot summer day. Try this with your favourite pizza or pasta and Bolognese.
