Everyday favorites from Piedmonte

When dining in my house on a weekday, it's the wines of piedmonte that are poured at my table.  But unfortunatly, you can't always be drinking Barolo.  This is a list of my favorite house wines from Piedmont.

3. Burlotto G.B. Dolcetto d'Alba (2009)

As I sat and sniffed around the edges of this glass, it reminded me of everything I love about Italian wine. The first impression was of blackberry jam and brioche, but with time in the glass, the slightest hint of barnyard and earth added dimensions that I had at first not noticed. It was easy on the palate, with perfect balance and flavors of wild berries and a bit of old wood. Some gravelly tannin was noticeable on the finish but it served to remind me that this wasn't just a forgettable wine from who-knows-where, this was Dolcetto from Piedmont and a truly excellent example at that.
