Dolcetto, translating to ‘little sweet one’ offers no reference to the sugar levels but as a descriptor to its youthful charm. Best enjoyed when young, this great-value wine is packed with dark and juicy red fruits, supported by phenomenal freshness which is quintessential to Piedmont. Unlike Barolo, you won’t have to wait decades to enjoy this wine.
Notes on the 2019 vintage are not yet available.

Dolcetto is mainly grown in the provinces of Cuneo, Asti, and Alessandria. Then, the areas are Langhe and Monferrato. It expresses itself at the best in 3 DOCG: Diano D’Alba DOCG (2010), Dogliani DOCG (2005), and Ovada DOCG (2008). Three different areas that give three different interpretations of Dolcetto.

Dolcetto is a thick-skinned variety. It has a huge quantity of anthocyanins, so its colour is deep ruby (sometimes purple). It buds and ripens early. This grape variety prefers a cool climate on calcareous marly terrains. The range for its cultivation is between 250 m and 600 m above the sea level (some exceptions tolerate even 700 m). Difficult to grow, susceptible to spring frosts.

Producer information The Marengo family is a small producer based in La Morra, Piedmont and has been producing Barolo since 1899. Their 1.5 hectare block of Brunate, planted in 1950, represents an incredible one-quarter of their vineyard holdings. The farm is currently run by Marco, after his father, Mario passed away in 2001. The philosophy of Marco is to respect what the vineyards give him, as much as possible. The work in the vines is more important to him than the work in the cellar.
