Best's Great Western 2011 Dolcetto

All of our Dolcetto plantings have come from cuttings off our original 1800s vines. These original vines produce some amazing small parcels in favourable years - hence the limited availability.

Wine Profile

The home of Dolcetto was originally Piedmont in North-West Italy. Dolcetto, ‘the little sweet one’, is an early-ripening variety that produces light to medium-bodied red wines. We’ve seen a resurgence in the popularity of Italian varieties in Australia of late, but it’s not necessarily a new trend.

Henry Best, always ahead of his time, planted the original Dolcetto vines at the end of the 1800s. It has long been a topic of conversation as to why Henry chose to plant about 25 per cent of the entire vineyard with what is, even today, a lesser known variety.  We are resigned to the fact that this is one of Henry’s eternal secrets.
