| BARGETTO WINERY California Dolcetto Santa Barbara County 12 Pack|
This Dolcetto comes from Santa Barbara where the weather is a little warmer than the Santa Cruz Mountains. The aromas of violets and cherry coupled with vanilla and oak are supported with a rich mouthfeel.
-Michael Sones, Winemaker
Bargetto Winery has been in continuous operation since 1918. During prohibition, the proprieters farmed and sold fruit. When prohibition ended, the winery began producing wine for the wholesale markets. The winery continued through the 1940's, 1950's, and 1960's. In the 1970's, the winery completed a huge modernization project. These days, Bargetto is committed to growing grapes that do well in the Santa Cruz mountains. More recently, the winemakers have been experimenting with northern Italian grape varietals such as Dolcetto.
-Alan Bayer for WineGlobe.com
Dolcetto originated in Piedmont, Italy. This grape is the favorite "everyday" wine varietal of the Piemontese. In California, there is a very small community of Italian expatriots growing this grape. It has great flavors of berries and plums. It has a very nice acidity, but is verylight on tannin. It is best drunk while young.
