2021 Dolcetto Estate

2021 Dolcetto Estate
Add To Cart

Dolcetto is a variety you will typically see in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, and our decision to plant it on our Eola-Amity Hills estate was a calculated risk. Our Dolcetto is planted on the rockiest and steepest spot on our vineyard, finding its home atop of fractured volcanic soil on a steeply pitched grade that gives the tractor driver white knuckles. Our site’s fierce location forces the vines to develop an equally intense character.

Tasting Notes
Deep eggplant in color. The nose is tightly coiled, with elusive aromas of black tea, tar, and dried blueberry which seem to come and go between swirls. The palate is rustic, with firm and grainy tannins and tight acidity.
Vintage Notes
The 2021 Oregon harvest will be one to remember. It was dry with heat spikes throughout the summer. Fortunately, the grapes were unaffected by the historical “Heat Dome” that descended upon us in June. The fruit was beautiful and balanced, with generous aromatics.
