Pecchenino San Luigi Dogliani 2017
The Pecchenino family has worked in viticultural for over four generations and made the leap from small wine production to a winery of international recognition under the brothers Orlando and Attilio Pecchenino. Today, Pecchenino consists of 54 acres in Dogliani and an additional seven acres in Monforte. Focused on the production of high-quality Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and a few other select varietals, Pecchenino’s vines are painstakingly cared for by hand. In addition to its consistent high quality, Pecchenino distinguishes itself by being the only winery to produce Dolcetto aged in oak, resulting in Dolcetto wines with an aging potential of over 10 years.
This 100% Dolcetto is from the single vineyard Dogliani San Luigi. It is fermented in stainless steel for 8 days then aged 8-10 months in tank, followed by 3 months in bottle prior to release.
Tasting notes: The bouquet is fruit-forward with notes of currants, raspberries, blackber- ries and prunes. The flavor is well-balanced with sweet tannins and good acidity.
Food pairing: Pairs well with appetizers, pastas, white meats, red meats and roasts.
