It would also have been observed a bit more pronounced in the "Red grape dumpling" and in the "green grapes".
Growing areas It is widespread in the hilly areas of Piedmont and more so in the nearby regions.
History This is the first time that Dolcetto speaks in a document from the town of Dogliani in 1593, where farmers were invited to not waste their grapes before they were well mature. The first reliable scientific news on this grape variety dates back to 1798, by Giuseppe Nuvolone Pergamo, then deputy director of the Turin Agricultural Society, describing the qualities on behalf of the company. Subsequently in 1839 he was described by Giorgio Gallesio in his work Pomona italiana, a treat of fruit trees, now available free on the internet, which was then published in dossiers starting from 1817. Gallese had already described in 1812 the Dolcetto as an autochtonous grape Of Monferrato, returning to the subject in his work, where he also brought back all the other Piedmontese vines and their characteristics.
Features ampelographic Leaf: medium-small, pentagonal, pentalobata, red close to the petiole, top glabra, smooth, dark green color and red hues to the lips.

Features wine The characteristics of the wines produced by the cake can vary greatly in the different areas, although close to each other, but generally the color is deep ruby ​​red and the intense, fruity and floral scent. The taste expresses freshness, good pseudo-caloric sensations, light tannicity, discreet softness and texture, with pleasant fruity persistence.
Notes Resistance to adversity: In general, it is considered less resistant to cryptogamic diseases of "Barbera", and also to tinnitus. It is believed to be more resistant to atmospheric adversities (gels, hail).
