Dolcetto, Dogliani San Luigi Pecchenino 2019

£18.99 GBP

The family-run Pecchenino Wine Estate has been making wine on their parcel of land in the Dogliani since the 1700’s, and current generation and winemaker Orlando Pecchenino continues the family tradition of crafting superior Dolcettos.

The wines made from the Dogliani DOCG are generally richer, darker in fruit and much more intense than their Dolcetto d’Alba and Dolcetto D’Asti neighbours.

Aged for 12 months stainless steal, the wine sees an additional six months of aging in bottle. It is well structured and complex with layers of rich black fruit and cassis threaded with a seam of spice. This wine is the cabernet sauvignon lover’s Dolcetto—but with loads of Italian charm.
