Winemaker / Tasting Notes
Dolcetto is one of the most important wines of Tenuta Pelissero. The microclimate of Treiso and its' soil imbue this Dolcetto with a very good tannic and sweet texture balanced out with a pleasurable smoothness. The name is derived from a previous owner, a lady from Monferrato, who laboriously & diligently worked these lands. Showing off a beautiful purple color with crimson glints, the nose opens up with pronounced red cherry aromas. Sapid & pleasant on the palate, a nice balance is struck between tannins, acidity, & alcoholic warmth with a slightly bitter, almond tinged finish.
