Langhe Dolcetto - 2023

Dolcetto is a simple, everyday wine to drink with any meal. In the old Piedmontese tradition Dolcetto was a loyal companion to drink daily. Although its name may make you think of a sweet wine, Dolcetto is actually a dry wine and has a characteristic bitter aftertaste. This Dolcetto is characterized by a low alcohol content and a light body. Langhe Dolcetto has a ruby red color with violet reflections, an intense perfume of flowers and fresh fruits, a harmonious and well-structured flavor; it is a fresh wine that is suitable for many occasions of daily consumption, also perfectly accompanying a quick snack or a pizza. It should be served at a temperature of 16/18 degrees.
