Comparing Dolcetto
Among the most famous grapes of Piedmont, Dolcetto produces wines with interesting organoleptic qualities, a pleasing wine where fruit aromas are protagonists.
In these times where everyone is more or less looking for strong wines, robus and with the typical structure given by wood as to make them important, wines like Dolcetto are having some difficulties in the now vast wine scene. With its typical organoleptic qualities directly recalling fruits and flowers, Dolcetto is a wine which can be defined as a rarity.

In other words, Dolcetto was the wine of the holidays, considered as a special wine for special occasions.
