Dolcetto is known for its characteristic flavor profile of dark cherries, prunes and a slightly bitter finish. To quote Eric Asimov of the New York Times: “Left to its own devices, Dolcetto offers what naturally makes it so winning: an object lesson in the very Italian push-pull of blending bitter and sweet flavours, along with an earthiness and a rounded, lightly tannic texture.”
We couldn’t agree more. We find this wine to be well balanced, approachable, and yet surprisingly complex given the absence of oak influence. This is a fresh, lighter red with rounded mouthfeel and depth of palate created by the complex red fruit notes and slightly bitter edge of tannin. We suggest drinking this wine within the next two years.
