Here is an excellent example of the complexity and beauty that can develop in a Vin Nobile that has had time in the bottle. The nose starts with solid dark fruit, blackberry and dark cherry, with pretty dried herbs, tobacco, and some mint coffee notes. The palate is soft textured and complex with dusty black cherry skins, eucalyptus, pine, underbrush, organic Earth, and a touch of milk chocolate. Clean and fresh in character, with a long finish of mouth coating fine tannins and tobacco. 90% Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese) 10% Merlot.

  • It is hard to choose just one, but if you like dessert wine and you have never had a bottle of Dolce, do yourself a favor and plop down the $50-75 bucks and buy a bottle. This is one of the few wines I have had that rival the great Sauternes (not including Yquem--let's not fall too far into hyperbole). Near perfect balance--great acidity, fruit and just the right amount of sweetness. Outstanding.

  • Have you ever done a review on Red Mare Wine? Their Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc are amazing. I haven't tried their Chardonnay yet.
