Native vine from Southern Piedmont, Dolcetto is characterized by sweet fruits that give a dry, fresh and easydrinking wine.
Depending on the area and on the vinification, it can also be strong and full-bodied, even suitable for a medium-long wooden refining.
The vine normally produces a large number of clusters, so the winemakers tend to cut them off to increase ripeness and quality of the left ones.
This variety fears the rain near harvest-time and requires a lot of care to ensure a good result.
In autumn its leaves turn to a red-orange colour that fills the hills with warm tones.
