It is a red grape variety native of Piedmont, grown exclusively in this region where the Langhe is its favorite ground. Low acidity and the sweetness of its berries give this variety its name, although the wines made from it are all dry. The grape is still sweet enough to be eaten as table grapes. Dolcetto is a variety with a very early red grape which is grown in the province of Cuneo and Alessandria, while it is almost entirely absent in other areas, and entirely unknown abroad, except for some rare hectare grown in California and Argentina, but for which there are conflicting reports.
