Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)

From £32.00

Easy–drinking, dry wine with a texture as smooth as Italian silk. Full of young fruit and almond notes, with a pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

Description

The word Dolcetto actually means ‘little sweet one’, though nobody quite knows why, since the
wine is, in fact, dry. In any case, it makes a beautifully fresh wine, ready for drinking soon after harvesting
and best consumed within a year. Our Dolcetto is from the pretty provincial town of Ovada – precisely the
variety that was apparently beloved of Queen Anne, to whose reign we owe the Act of Union that created
the UK. Cheers to that!

Meet The Producer
Azienda Agricola Gaggino boasts not one, but two, vineyards set in the stunning Monferrato hills of
Piedmont and founded back in the early 1920’s by Gabriele’s great-grandfather, Tommaso. Gabriele is
uncharacteristically modest for a Piedmontese wine-maker, though is no less passionate for it. He’ll talk
you to death about his production techniques, and loves chatting about tractors too (don’t get him started
on modern gear mechanisms).

    I love this. Reminds me of happy evenings sat in a small cafe in the Piedmont mountains drinking Dolcetta. Not too sickly like so many wines these days. Have never tasted a better Dolcetto in the UK. Bello!
