deep, concentrated aromas of black berry, fig, hint of persimmon and date, hint of tabacco on the nose. med plus body, med plus acid, med plus intensity, fat texture comes with refreshing acidity. concentrated fruit and texture, bodied dolcetto that can paired with savory food...dried salumi, indian curry can be good with this wine. drunk with camagnola wheat pizza(mozz,tmt, prosciutto,asparagi, mushroom, sausage)moderate finish with savory notes...such as dried salumi.

Taste like really cheap red. Not for me at all. Like jug wine.

Massive dolcetto that only Sandrone could do. Herbaceous, bursting with voluptuous fruit.

Really lovely. Light but with a good amount of character and depth that it makes interesting.

Had good structure and tasted good but a little one dimensional.

Not a lot of power behind it but nice fruit and earth balance regardless - like popping a handful of unwashed blueberries into your mouth. Crisp and clean overall. A fine dolcetto, which I continue to think is an underrated casual drinking grape.
