Quinto Chionetti Dolcetto di Dogliani
The benchmark producer in Dogliani now has plenty of competition (Anna Maria ABBONA, M&E ABBONA, Luigi EINAUDI, PECCHENINO and others). Of some 14 ha, six are designated Briccolero, but these are often given a close run by the rest, sold as San Luigi. Both are delicious, perfumed, full of fruit and best with 1–2 years’ age.
