The 2018 Dogliani Superiore Vigne Sori' San Martino is another terrific wine in this range from Boschis.

Varietal: Dolcetto

Wineries in Italy and many other countries in the world have longed admired the Dolcetto grape, a black skinned varietal responsible for many interesting and intensely flavored wines. Despite their name translating as 'little sweet one' in Italian, the wines produced from this varietal are almost always dry, and benefit from the strong tannins held in the dense skins of the fruit. Although this characteristic normally results in a full bodied wine, Dolcetto grapes generally are responsible for producing quite light wines as a result of their low acidity, yet are packed full of interesting flavors such as liquorice and prunes, black cherries and almonds which are a delight to the palate and make them a great match for strongly flavored and spicy foods.

Region: Piedmont

n Italy, the region most closely associated with excellent quality red wines and characterful sparkling wines is Piedmont. This alpine region is located in the north-west of the country, and features beautiful foothills of the impressive mountain range which forms the nearby border between Italy, France and Switzerland. Wineries in Piedmont work with the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive in the warm, dry summers and cooler autumns, as well as the beautifully expressive Moscato grapes which are used for the sparkling Asti wines the region is famed for. For generations, these wineries have perfected the art of aging their red wines, and blending grape varietals to get the most out of each one, leading to a region known all over the world for the exceptional quality of its produce.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
