Winery
On the nose, a bouquet filled with juicy cherries, pomegranate, and raspberry, all intertwined with fresh herbs and tobacco leaf. On the palate, the fruit becomes darker and deeper, all supported by a mineral-tinged spine. The wine finishes on a fresh and vibrant note, inviting the palate to take another sip.

Varietal: Dolcetto

There are few grape varietals in the world which hold such intense and interesting flavors as the Dolcetto. These grapes have been grown for centuries in their native Italy, and have also had much success in the New World, where they are equally prized for their unique characteristics. These black grapes have the ability to produce strongly colored red wines, packed full of fascinating flavors which pair well with a wide variety of foods. Most commonly, Dolcetto varietal grapes produce wines which carry the flavors of liquorice, prune and black cherries, with a bitter finish reminiscent of almonds. They strong tannins and light acidity result in interesting wines which are at once large in the mouth, and yet relatively light and drinkable, perfect for those looking for something a little different from their red wines.

Region: Piedmont

Situated in the north-western part of Italy, the region of Piedmont is known worldwide and is highly respected for the quality of the wines produced there. Many of the most successful sub-regions in Piedmont produce many of the world's finest red wines, such as those made from the excellent Nebbiolo grape varietal in areas such as Barolo and Barbaresco. However, the historic wineries which typify this region use a relatively wide variety of grapes, including Dolcetto and Barbera for their red wines, which are typically aged and have a delightful velvety character. Piedmont isn't all about beautifully complex red wines, though, as it is also famed for high quality, elegant sparkling wines, notably the Asti wines made with the white Moscato grape. The region benefits from a range of terroirs which are often well expressed in the sparkling wines, and a wonderfully consistent climate ideal for vineyard cultivation.

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.
