Dolcetto was the first wine we ever made, beginning with the 2004 vintage. This marks our tenth vintage. The "little sweet one" produces dry wines from relatively large berries and clusters. An adorable contradiction.
Nevarez Vineyard, Paso Robles
"This is the first wine to come off the vine each harvest. Dolcetto, for me, conjures feelings of excitement about the upcoming season."
Christopher Ferrara, Winemaker
Elegant fruit and complementary structure, this wine is easy to drink. Often a red wine drinkers go-to for food pairing with lighter dishes, like fish and poultry.
Low acidity with good tannin structure and a rounded palate. Find notes of black cherry, violets, licorice root and fig jam. This wine spent 14 months in oak—10% new French oak with the remainder neutral French oak.
This northern Italian grape from the Piedmont region is planted on the less desirable hillside aspects. The Nebbiolo grape garners the attention from this region, but the locals sip on Dolcetto.
