2016 Commuovere Dolcetto di Dogliani Valdibà DOCG

Dolcetto, a grape that many believe to produce an easy going, simple wine to enjoy, is actually one that can be greatly influenced by the terroir in which it is grown. This particular Dolcetto hails from the esteemed Dogliani Valdibà DOC, recognized as imparting distinct characteristics to the grapes grown here. Located in the Northern Italian region of the Langhe, the area is close to the cooling influences of the Alps, allowing the grapes to fully mature, while keeping the freshness and acidity in the fruit. The result is a rich, supple Dolcetto with balancing acidity and freshness that some may not have. Enjoy this delightful wine with pork, duck and lighter red meats.
