While Dolcetto is not the most prestigious grape variety grown in Piedmont, it represents a significant proportion of plantings and plays an important role in locals’ daily life. The unpretentious, straightforwardly delicious wines made from Dolcetto can be found in every roadside trattoria in the area, where patrons gulp them by the carafe at all hours of the day. The hilltop town of Diano d’Alba represents one of seven appellations specific to Dolcetto, producing well-priced reds that truly shine at table with piemontese fare. Specialties like the egg-noodle-based agnolotti and tajarin, along with traditional antipasti utilizing raw or cooked veal, pair effortlessly; the wine is nonetheless adaptable enough to accompany whatever you may concoct in your home kitchen. The Sörì Cristina from Il Palazzotto, a small, family-run estate managed by fourth-generation grower Paolo Olivero, is a soft, fruity, and elegant Dolcetto, conjuring violets and purple berries. Serve it slightly chilled and frequently. –Anthony Lynch
