Region: Langhe, Piedmont, Italy
I was having a lovely lunch at Coppa in Boston recently and had some day pasta. I asked for a red that wouldn't put me to sleep and stumbled upon this treat that I will declare my every day wine for the rest of the year. It's so special to me. From the first sip I knew we were made to be together.
Fausto and Cinzia Cellario are a husband and wife duo that are showing the world the potential that Dolcetto has. This rather light grape is so easy drinking, but can sometimes lack character. It is usually sitting as the table wine next to its big sister, Nebbiolo. These two let the beauty of Dolcetto and the vineyards it comes from speak for themselves and with some extra TLC have created a wine I'm in love with.
Tasting notes: Blueberry, pomegranate, and purple flowers.
