There was once a time in Piemonte, decades ago, when growers had to beg clients stocking up on Dolcetto and Barbera to also pick up a few bottles of Barolo. It seems unimaginable today, but the Langhe’s economy once depended far more on the humble reds from its workhorse grapes than on the King of Wines. Uncomplicated and easy to down, Porro’s Dolcetto illustrates the popular appeal of such wines. It smells of violets and wild blackberries, feels soft, plump, and round on the palate, and is completely gulpable.
