The Story:

Dolcetto is an Italian varietal whose name means “little sweet one”.  Although the name implies sweetness, the resulting wine is almost always dry.  Often the wines express fruitiness with balancing tannins and are meant to be consumed in one to two years after release.  In Europe, wines meant for early consumption are referred to as “fresh wines”.  Here in Texas, we refer to these as perfect summer wines!  

The Tasting Notes:

Perfect to serve lightly chilled on a warm fall afternoon, the Dolcetto is 100% stainless steel fermented and aged leading into a fruit-forward red wine bursting with black cherry and licorice notes. Montepulciano, just 20%, is blended in adding structure to the wine.
