Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red with orange reflections. Ripe fruit nose of currants and raspberries with hints of violet. Balanced with silky, sweet tannins, excellent structure and a long finish.

Pairs well with red meats, braises and medium to long-aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Graphite, eucalyptus and spice aromas lead off, while sweet, jammy cherry and berry flavors abound, with accents of tea and iron. Firms up on the long finish. This needs some time. Best from 2019 through 2033.
JS 93
James Suckling
Very floral and ripe fruit aromas here follow through to a full body, firm and chewy tannins and an underlying dried acidity with a stone finish. Needs time to soften. A longtime favorite.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
When he vinifies Le Coste, Orlando Pecchenino macerates the grapes on the skins for 30 days and ages the wine in 660-gallon casks for three years. His 2011 is dark-toned with black cherrry and sour plum flavos, a tight mineral texture and firm, ferrous tannins giving the wine brightness and lift. It needs time in the cellar for the structure to soften.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This opens with earthy aromas that recall mature berry, game, baked soil, menthol and leather. The bracing palate offers dark berry, toast, sage, dark cooking spices and a balsamic note alongside youthfully assertive tannins. Drink after 2019.

Pecchenino, Italy
Pecchenino Winery Video

The Company was founded at the end of the nineteenth century, in an area where Dolcetto vineyards have been a typical feature for centuries, as is documented by a writing that dates back to 1432, which is kept in the communal archives.

The farm has always been family run, and the land has passed from father to son throughout its history. The first historical evidence of the farm is from the beginning of the twentieth century, when the farm was led by Attilio Pecchenino (the grandfather) and had little more than 8 hectares of land. In the 70s, the farm was given to Marino Pecchenino (Attilio's son), and in 1987 to Orlando and Attilio (Marino's two sons) who currently own it and manage it. At present, after having recently bought a new farm (Bricco Botti), the total land owned by Pecchenino is approx. 25 hectares, all in the area of Dogliani. For a couple of year now, Pecchenino has expended much energy on making his dolcettos more elegant and appetizing abroad as well as in Italy. The results clearly show in his two main house Dolcettos: the San Luigi and the Siri d'Jermu that recently was upgraded to Dogliani DOCG status.

Pecchenino winery is managed in a sustainable fashion: Orlando is convinced that the quality of his wine is strictly related to the natural health of his vineyard. His main objective is that of growing the best possible grapes with the lowest possible impact on nature. In the vineyards, he opts for organic compost and avoids the use of any chemical products for weed or pest control; his treatments in the vineyards are all natural unless it becomes absolutely necessary.
