Dolcetto

Dolcetto (also known as Acqui, Barbirono, Bathiolin, Batialin, Beina, Bignola, Bignona, Bignonia, Bignonina, Bourdon Noir, Cassolo, Charbonneau, Charbono, Chasselas Noir, Cote Rouge Merille, Crete de Coq, Debili Rifosk, Dolcedo Rotstieliger, Dolceto, Dolcetta Nera, Dolcetto A Raspe Verde, Dolcetto A Raspo Rosso, Dolcetto Nero, Dolcetto Piemontese, Dolchetto, Dolcino Nero, Dolciut, Dolsin, Dolsin Raro, Dolzin, Dolzino, Dosset, Gros Noir de Montelimar, Gros Plant and Maennlicher Refosco) is a black wine grape variety widely grown in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy. The name means “little sweet one”. Wines produced from this grape are nearly always dry, tannic and fruity, with moderate or very low acidity levels. The grapes, which ripen mid season (late September to October) are oval in form, medium to large in size with thick dark purple skins which contain high amounts of anthocyanins to produce a dark coloured wine.
