Additional Information:

Varietal:

Dolcetto

- How could you not love a great with a name that means "little sweet one?" But don't let that deceive you. This varietal, grown in Italy's Piedmont, may be a low-acid, fruit-forward red, but it can also have significant tannic structure, particularly those from the Dogliani DOC. Traditionally vinified dry, wines made from Dolcetto tend to have a sweet edge to them, with ripe red fruit flavors and perfumed bouquets. According to the Oxford Companion to Wine, many producers have learned to manage its tannic edge with shorter fermentation. There are a total of seven DOCs that produce Dolcetto: Dolcetto d'Aqui, Dolcetto d'Asti, Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba, Dolcetto delle Langhe Monregalesi, Dolcetto di Dolgiani, Dolcetto di Ovada and Dolcetto d'Alba. Dolcetto is also grown in the Italy's Liguria where it is called Ormeasco.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
