Francesco Giacosa Dolcetto d'Alba 2017
- Textured, savoury
Dolcetto comes from the Alba region in Piemonte, northern Italy and is known and loved for its lower acidity, meaning it’s a wine to be enjoyed young and works well without food. This particular dolcetto is a well-balanced wine with notes of blackberries, cherries, violets and cloves. It’s fresh and fruity, and something to get into over the next two or three years. So what are you waiting for, mofo?

If you’ve never plugged Piedmont into Google images then now’s the time. A northern Italian region that spoons both France and Switzerland, it’s one of the more picturesque wine regions in the world and better yet, the vinos do the dramatic backdrop justice. Piedmont wines benefit from the warmth of the Mediterranean and the chill of the Alps, and the combination of these climates means the valleys will often be shrouded in fog. Behind the fog you’ll find Piedmont’s two superstar wines: Barolo and Barbaresco. Known as the King of Wines in Italy, Barolo in particular is lauded over worldwide but really, there’s more to Piedmont than these two. Aside from juicy, tannic nebbiolo, keep an eye out for barbera, the go-to vino for many Italians.
