Despite its sweet-sounding name, Dolcetto is in fact a dry red wine. "Dolce" can mean not only "sweet" but also "soft" and the wine takes its name not only from the sweetness of the grape but also from the "softness" of the gentle hills where the vines are cultivated, called "dusset" probably deriving from the Latin "dulcis" meaning soft or soothing. Produced entirely from Dolcetto grapes harvested a little earlier than other grape varieties, this wine is unmistakable. It is a deep rich ruby-red colour with a deeply fruity nose and a slight bitter almond twist. Soft but well-balanced wine with little acidity, it has an intense character.

The producer

Armando and Aurelio Montobbio are the owners; they are twins, both oenologists, in a way to tie the most rationalized techniques with the ancient wine-making traditions. Montobbio's family is linked from different generations to the good quality wine world, and on their ancestors way, Armando and Aurelio keep on searching to increase more and more the absolute quality.

Best with
