The Briccolero Dolcetto vineyards are located southeast of the larger San Luigi vineyard at almost 400m above sea level. A good forty years ago, this vineyard was planted with Dolcetto vines. Since then, the Chionetti family has been producing this high-quality Dolcetto.

During September, the grapes are usually picked by hand. After destemming, the must is fermented in an open wooden vat. The mash is then matured in a cement tank and, depending on the vintage, for a shorter period in a large oak wood tank. Before the Briccolero goes on sale, it is stored on the bottle for a few more months.

This Dolcetto has a variety of flavors. Both fruity, but also balsamic and spicy aromas dominate the spectrum . On the palate it appears structured, dense and warm. The tannin is fine-grained and the finish is persistent. A wonderful Dolcetto!

Briccolero goes best with pasta, rice, risotto and poultry. It is very mature to drink now and for the next seven years.

The producer Chionetto Quinto

The history of the Chionetti family has been linked to viticulture since the 19th century.
In 1912 Giuseppe Chionetti bought a company in the vineyards of San Luigi in the municipality of Dogliani. From then on, the Chionetti family sold their Dolcetto wine to the largest traders in the region.

Little by little, the family began selling bottled wines, and the Chionetti name was formally established. But it is thanks to Quinto, the grandson of the founder Giuseppe, that the marketing of the bottles with the name of the family really increased.

Andrea, the son of Quinto, decided to explore the potential of the vineyards and so they started producing three Dolcetti Crus: Sorì Briccolero, San Luigi, Vigna la Costa.

During those years it expanded the company significantly. The Chionetti wines became synonymous with Dolcetto wines from Dogliani, and the family began exporting abroad and to the United States. During his lifetime, Quinto received a recognized high reputation in the entire wine world and this continued after his death.

In 1988, at the moment of greatest growth, Andrea and his daughter Elena died in a car accident. However, Quinto continued the work he had handed over to his son years earlier and led the company into the new millennium with great determination. Quinto received a recognized high reputation in the entire wine world during his lifetime and this has continued after his death.

In 2013, Quinto finally handed over the reins to his grandson Nicola, who decided to continue the tradition of producing Dogliani and to resume the winemaking of Cru La Costa, which his father Andrea already wanted.

Since In 2015 the Chionetti family acquired 3 vineyards in the Barolo area. The grapes are vinified separately, and now Chionetti produces three different Barolo Cru wines.
