Pietra Santa Dolcetto

Pietra Santa Dolcetto Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: The grapes for this wine were grown exclusively on our Cienega Valley estate. Prior to fermentation the newly pressed grapes underwent three weeks of cold soak to ensure maximum extraction of color and flavor. Two years of barrel aging softened the tannins and developed the vibrant berry, hazelnut and licorice flavors.

Varietal Definition
Italian red grape from the Piedmont area of the North West. Produces soft varietal wines for early drinking. Gives lots of up front fruit with soft tannins with a style not unlike the Gamay of Beaujolais.
