Dolcetto d'Acqui "Il Commensale," Paolo Pizzorni - 2021

Item # 27561 750mL

Ruby in the glass, this soft, violet Dolcetto pleases with small plums and a vinous, ripe bouquet. A bitter almond finish makes this more complex and food-friendly. Serve with pizza and sausages any night of the week. The terroir for this wine is interesting--mostly calcareous layered with clay, rendering a wine that's more acid-driven with a zippy, fresh finish.

Dolcetto

A red grape variety grown in Piedmont and nearly nowhere else. Dolcetto-based wines are not sweet, as many people might surmise on hearing the name; the Piedmontese declared it "dolce" only because it is lower in acid than the wines they're used to.
