Pecchenino
Italy, Piedmont
Green Status: Organic

Orlando Pecchenino and his brother, Attilio, run this estate in the Dogliani section of Piedmont.  It has been in the Pecchenino family since the 1700s, but has been making wine under the family name for four generations.  Orlando is a sweet guy, and the wine Dolcetto, “the little sweet one”, seems to be appropriate.  Orlando and Attilio farm about 61 acres, most of which is planted to Dolcetto; the family also has acquired property in Monforte, in San Giuseppe and Bussia for the production of Barolo Le Coste and Barolo Bussia Corsini.

 

The farm uses organic practices in farming.  All the grapes are hand-harvested.  The Dogliani DOCG doesn’t require the word “dolcetto” any longer—if you see “Dogliani DOCG”, you know it’s dolcetto.

 

Orlando, like many growers in Piedmont, is an avid cyclist.

 

Pecchenino is part of the Vias Imports portfolio of Italian wines.
