Langhe Dolcetto DOC I Dossi 2017

Tasting notes

It is the table wine par excellence and one of the most typical and widespread vines of Piedmont.

It is named after the sweetness of its ripe grapes, but also the Piedmontese term “duset”, ie a hill which is not particularly high and impervious.

Bright ruby ​​color, strongly fruity, with a dry and strong taste and an aftertaste of bitter almond and tannin.

It goes well with vegetable and cold cuts appetizers, soups, risotto, bollito and cheeses.
