Giacomo Brezza e Figli make very elegant, nuanced wines with minimal oak aromas and flavors.
This is the bright & light side to Dolcetto, with very fine subtle tannins that make it very drinkable, and a great, flexible, everyday food partner. "This is a crimson, fruity, perfumed, drinkable version of a grape that can have a fair amount of structure; drink it young, for vibrant fruit flavors balanced by a faint tealeaf dryness that makes the wine perfect with a wide range of food. Aged in stainless steel and cement tanks, no wood." - Oliver McCrum, Importer

JAMES SUCKLING 90 POINTS - "Roasted herbs, elderberry pie and spices. Full-bodied with plenty of fruit-compote flavors and a fruity finish."
Call it a soapbox, but we think Dolcetto is one of the world's great misunderstood wines. Is it because the wines are grown in Piedmonte in the shadow of the great Nebbiolo wines of Barolo and Barbaresco? Is it because Dolcetto is rarely meant to be aged? The virtues in this bottling from Pecchenino are obvious with a purity of blueberry fruit and violet perfume wrapped in a satiny texture that would seduce many a Pinot-lover.

The Dogliani DOCG is home to some of the greatest Dolcetto vineyards in the Piemonte, and this appellation accounts for the majority of the estate’s 12 hectares under vine. The oldest Dolcetto vines were planted in 1936, while the youngest date back to 1978.
