Dolcetto d'Alba 2013

Dolcetto is rarely transcendent. This is one I’ve truly been impressed with. More stewed fruits as it revealed itself. Bold but not over the top. — 12 days ago

Dei Grassi Dolcetto d'Alba 2021

Lots of acid for a Dolcetto. Quite light, a little thin. Raspberry, fig, black pepper, touch of baking spice, mushroom. From Moore Brothers, 11/25/22. — 2 days ago
