About The Wine

The Dolcetto from Massolino is made from grapes grown exclusively in the Serralunga region of Piedmonte.

This is the wine made for drinking during harvest, where the fresh berried fruits and soft tannins help was down lunch while grapes are being brought into the cellar.

It's a supple wine, not profound in complexity but very high in drinkability.

This is the wine you drink while you wait for you Baroli to mature.
