Dolcetto Grapes

About

Dolcetto Grapes are grown principally in the Piedmont region of Italy and its main use is in creating everyday Italian wine. Dolcetto, meaning "little sweet one" in Italian, is typically not blended with other grapes when being made into wine. Dolcetto Grapes are thin-skinned, and wines produced from these grapes have been compared with the famous Beaujolais Nouveau as both can be drunk immediately upon release.

Social/Political

History: Originally from Piedmont Italy goes back to 17th century. It was always considered to be a grape that produced low alcohol wines which should be drunk within a year. In the past Dolcetto was drunk with desserts because of its dry or slightly sweet characteristics. Today with modern winemaking techniques it has become a much better wine and is an important variety. If higher than 12.5% it has the right to be given the name SUPERIOR.
