2017 Dolcetto, Teldeschi Vineyard

Teldeschi Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley

$28.00

Overview

This Dry Creek Valley Dolcetto is made from a vineyard that is literally next door to our winery.  This vineyard is farmed and owned by one of our mentors and close friends, Ray Teldeschi.  The wine is a true representation of our appellation, Dry Creek Valley, which is a natural home for the varietal, which totals only ½ acre.  

Tasting Notes

We took a traditional approach to our Dolcetto, and structured it based upon our experience with the wines of Piedmont. This Dolcetto is a pretty food wine, with medium body and tannins, and the signature acidity that the varietal is known for. It would be best paired with charcuterie or classic Italian fare, including meatballs, pizza, or a hardy risotto.
