What You Need To Know About Dolcetto Wine And Food

Dolcetto is a red grape variety found in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy. Dolcetto wines remind some of Beaujolais. They are fruity, contain a low level of tannin, and should be consumed young. Suggested food pairings include Pasta with uncooked Tomato Sauce and light meats.

Dolcetto starts at about $12 a bottle. First try a fruity, vanilla Pertinace Dolchetto d'Alba in the $13 range. Step up to the Chionetti Dolcetto di Dogliani Briccolero with purple fruit, mint, basil, and a bit of earth for about $20. For a couple of dollars more try the Pecchenino Siri D Jermu Dolcetto that speaks of black cherries, tar, and almonds. For about twice the price go for the Chionetti Dolcetto di Dogliani Briccolero. Other good producers are Marcarini and Vietti.
