Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Dolcetto - Another Reliable Wine

Here's another reliable and inexpensive wine to pick from a restaurant wine list. I've never had a bad Dolcetto. This grape is relatively unknown outside of the Piedmont region of Italy famous for Barolo and Barbera. Dolcetto D'Alba and Dolcetto Dogliani are made in the area just north of Barolo. The wines are almost always delicious, medium bodied and complex enough. They go great with all Italian food, especially pasta, and meat dishes from the Piedmont and Tuscany. The nice thing about Dolcetto is that it is so consistently good that you don't really have to remember much except -"Dolcetto".
