Pecchenino Fratelli is a family-owned winery, actually one of the oldest in Dogliani, dating back to the late 1700s. The winery has since the beginning been run by the same family that has become one of the driving forces behind the appelation of Dogliano DOCG. Today it's the two brothers Orlando and Attilio who since 1987 manage the wine production of Pecchenino. They have not only succeeded in developing the size of the vineyard from 8 to 25 hectares. Also the wines have a new structure with good balance and great elegance. Pecchenino mainly grow Dolcetto grapes for the Dogliani wines, but there is also Barbera, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and last but not least Nebbiolo grapes for the exclusive Barolo wines.
Ruby red color with Bordeaux Red highlights. Spicy aromas of raspberry and blackberry with some hints of white truffle. A well-structured taste with a fresh acidity and well present but elegant tannins. A wine with good storage potential which can be paired with game- or red meat in a few year's time.
