Dolcetto, "little sweet one", presents as a medium-bodied, highly aromatic, lush wine. Originally grown in the rolling hills of Piedmont, it now hails from sandy red soil characteristic of the Texas High Plains and Jet Wilmeth's Diamante Doble Vineyards, (Tokio TX).

Dolcetto’s preference for extra warmth and sunshine make it yet another great grape for the Texas High Plains. Once it reaches the Becker crush pad, great care is taken to ensure the fruit-driven flavors prevail. Aging in a blend of French and American oak barrel, more neutral than new, allow fruit and tannins to meld. Upon opening, we’re greeted with stewed red fruits, a bright acidity and savory, spicy aromas urging you to pair with charcuterie, later opening to reveal bright fruits, black tea, and light hay.

We’re quite enamored of this “little one”. We think this presents a lovely wine, perfect for pairing with your everyday dinner or any special occasion.

Aromatics: Dark cherries, black tea, deep violets, savory spicy notes

On the Palate: Zippy acidity, black cherries, stewed dark berries, freshly brewed tea, with lingering blueberries and medium tannins on the finish
