Dolcetto 2019

Dolcetto 2019

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 plums, potpourri and dark chocolate.

Our 2019 Dolcetto is a medium-bodied wine with a deep purple colour in the glass. On the nose you will find notes of plum, pomegranate, potpourri and dark chocolate. Rhubarb and strawberry jam characters on the palate complement the nose. The wine is easy drinking but with a satisfying and complex flavour profile and a long finish, assisted by the lively acidity and feathery tannins. 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.
