Dolcetto is a native grape of the Italian wine region of Piemonte (Piedmont). It’s an indigenous wine that the local people of region drink everyday. The Battaglio estate is a small artisanal winery in the Alba area of the region focusing on indigenous wines from Piemonte. Gianluca Battaglio is the owner and enologist. The vines are trained using the Guyot system on moderately sloping hills. After harvesting by hand, the Dolcetto is fermented in steel at a controlled temperature between 25°-28° C. When fermentation is complete the wine is left to age in steel for at least 2 months and in the bottle for at least 1 additional month before being released to market.
This Dolcetto is light bodied while giving a full mouthfeel, low tannins, and a clean dry finish making it easy to drink with or without food. Ruby red in colour, it has a delicately vinous bouquet, rich in hints of flowers and fruit. Bright red fruits, silky smooth texture, and aromatics that are delectable. An elegant dry taste, underlined by a slight almond note, typical of the variety. If you like Pinot Noir you’ll love this Dolcetto. If you’re looking for a crowd pleaser when you’re with friends this is the wine for you. Serve at 16-18° C.
