This is really very nice. Definitely very dry and with rustic, stern structure underneath the fruit. I can even see this hold for 3 years or so and improve slightly during that time. Has a really long finish and shows off the cherry fruit and leather and coffee notes that I associate with Dolcetto. Great match with italian fennel salsicce and orechiette with dried tomato pesto. I recommend this Dolcetoo highly for fans of the more traditional Piedmont wines.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
