This weeks episode of Wine Time Fridays is all about the Dolcetto grape, a variety native to Piedmont, in Italy. A week ago Shelley and Phil were not too familiar with this grape but really enjoyed both offerings they taste through, a Pecchenino San Luigi Dogliani (from Italy) and one they found in their own backyard from Idiot’s Grace, a winery in Oregon although this fruit is from the Columbia Gorge in Washington.
For more information on the Pecchenino San Luigi Dogliani, Dolcetto, please visit this Reverse Wine Snob post at https://www.reversewinesnob.com/pecchenino-san-luigi-dogliani
