Periplo Quinque Dolcetto d'Alba 2019
- Medium bodied
They drink dolcetto in Piemonte while they’re waiting for the nebbiolo to ripen, or so they say. This is a concentrated wine, bursting with rich, juicy fruit. There’s depth to it, and plenty of interest in the glass. Think pinot with more body, or merlot with more cherry (and character). There’s no oak, so it’s all about that fruit flavour and fun drinking. An ideal candidate to take to dinner parties. Being Italian, it’s naturally charming, and it’ll pair with pretty much everything too.

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.
