A fairly unusual style from a very reputable producer. Very restrained and drinkable, with just the faintest hints of black cherry, tar, smoke and leather with the typical (if a bit softer) rose petal. Clean and easy finish with flavors of licorice, plum and violets.
Located on the family vineyards in the Monforte d’Alba commune, this 100% Dolcetto is a beautiful expression of what this grape can do. With leather, cherry, raspberry and tobacco accents, and a little acidity that goes a long way, it’s really hard to not drink a second bottle. This gem will go with our sopressata on a platter, or any sharp hard cheese.
