Italian for "Little Sweet One", Ponzi Dolcetto is neither little nor sweet. This rare varietal from the Piedmont region of Italy is big and bold. It is also quite dry and possesses a long satisfying finish. Planted in a two-acre block at the Ponzi Aurora Vineyard, this small-batch wine is only available online and in the Tasting Room.
“This spicy nose of dried ancho and chipotle floats from the glass laced with espresso, dried lilac,
black licorice and Italian plums. The mouth is black raspberry and sweet cream, pretty acidity and long chalky tannins. ”
– Winemaker Luisa Ponzi
