2010 Moccagatta Dolcetto d'Alba

2010 Moccagatta Dolcetto d'Alba (Piedmont, Italy)

Dolcetto technically means "little sweet one," but this PYT is totally dry, with a deep purple color and flavors of purple plums and violets. It doesn't have any oaky/spicy notes, and the tannins are mmmellllowww, the same way your attitude should be when you're spending a beautiful day at a bocce game. Northern Italians love their bocce, and they love their Dolcetto, too. Put a bottle on ice (not ice in the wine) and bring it with your game-face. 

Drink with friends and: portobello mushroom sandwiches
