Dolcetto di Dogliani San Luigi 2007 Pecchenino
It has been another long winter, but finally it seems that spring has sprung! The evenings are getting longer and the mornings lighter, though there is still a nip in the air. To keep the chill at bay treat yourself to a hug in a glass, with a delicious, fruity Dolcetto de Dogliani, by San Luigi
Dolcetto means sweet in Italian, and this dry red wine will give a hint of sweetness, with its soft, fruity aromas and supple tannins. This is an elegant, intense red from Langhe Hill, which is the same area to produce the famous Barolo wine.
These succulent Dolcetto grapes give flavours and aromas of fresh cherry, raspberry and plum along with a savoury note and the elegant freshness that is associated with Italian red wines. This is the perfect match for the Sunday Roast or try, as I did, with a lovely terrine of rabbit.
