Grape Varieties


Glossary terms

Dolcetto (red)

Not sweet despite the sweet-sounding nomenclature, this is an everyday north-west Italian variety whose low acidity and tannins make it perfect for lapping up risotto and pasta in the Beaujolais mould. Made for drinking young, it's alive with vibrant plummy, liquorice-like fruitiness, although some of the best Piemontese producers make a more serious, richer style which can improve with age for as long as five years. Also found in limited quantities in Argentina and Australia.

Dornfelder (red)

Colourful, early-ripening red producing fruity, appealing reds in Germany and grown to a limited extent in England.
