The Dolcetto grape hails from Italy’s Piedmont region where it is a favorite everyday lunchtime wine. Santerra’s Sonoma County grown Dolcetto, similar to its Italian counterpart, is bright reddish in color with aromas of plum and kiwi. It is a juicy, quaffable wine with soft flavors of melon and strawberry, light tannin structure and fresh acidity.

When served slightly chilled (58 degrees), the Santerra Dolcetto is perfect for picnics and outdoor barbecues, pairing well with fruits, cheeses and such grilled favorites as chicken with herbs, and burgers. Even though Dolcetto is a dry red wine, the name roughly translates from Italian as the “little sweet one,” due to its fruity character. The ripe berry fruitiness combined with soft tannins make this Dolcetto a charmingly seductive summer time wine.

Note: By design, this is an unfiltered wine, thus containing natural sediment that is completely harmless. You may choose to decant it before drinking.
