While Dolcetto is not the most prestigious grape variety grown in Piedmont, these unpretentious, straightforwardly delicious wines can be found in every roadside trattoria in the area, where patrons gulp them by the carafe at all hours of the day. The Sod Cristina from II 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. The word "sorl" in the local dialect refers to a hilltop area with good sun exposure that produces great wine-a word that is therefore added to historical names of vineyards to identify a superior terroir. Paolo's Dolcetto is an honest ambassador of this workhouse grape that the Piemontese drink daily with their robust cuisine. Serve it slightly chilled and frequently. –Anthony Lynch
