The true nature of Dolcetto is often misrepresented and hidden by its name. Those who approach it for the first time may presume it is a sweet wine, while in fact it is dry, rich and fruity. De dulcis in fundo plays on this misunderstanding and tells us "We'll talk about the dessert later!". The label both reveals and does not reveal the true nature of Dolcetto in a “see/not see” of the grape bunch. While it is a juicy and very sweet fruit, it is quite unlike the wine itself.
