Fruity, clean, refined, and focused, with silky texture and fine-grain tannins. Very smooth drinking. The Pecchenino wine estate dates back to the end of the 1700's and has always been a family-run operation, with the holding handed down from father to son for generations. The area of Dogliani is especially suited to the cultivation of the Dolcetto grape, whose presence there is documented in a manuscript from 1432. In fact, to be called a Dogliani wine, it has to be, by law, made from Dolcetto grape.
Fermentation is induced using native natural yeasts to best preserve the typical characteristics and personality of the fruit. No additives are used except for regulation sulphur dioxide.
Food pairing: Very versatile. Pizza, burgers, to red meats to hearty vegetable dishes, etc.
