Taste the upgrade in these grapes

Move over, Barolo. Wines from neighbor Dogliani, Italy were recently granted the superior DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garanita) classification, too. Dogliani wines use only Dolcetto grapes, which have always taken a back seat to Barolo’s Nebbiolo, but produce some juicy, complex dry reds. See what the upgrade is all about with the 2014 Pecchenino San Luigi Dogliani
