« Prev Next » 4 of 12
Average price: $17.29 from 2 stores
Fresh with clear bright violet, bitter almond and earthy plum aromas that gain dark cherry fruit, and a little charry earthy smoky top note with some air. Opening with bright acids, this is fruity and fresh in the mouth with plum skin and black cherry skin flavors that are rather edgy and very freshly fruity. Bracing and mouth cleansing, this is raw and round and seamless in a fairly medium light to light bodied wine. Lovely grape skin tannins and fine acids slice through the palate like a knife through butter. Can’t wait to try this with grilled tuna and grilled pork. The all-purpose Dolcetto. 91pts

  • 943463Bill Davis Here is one of my favs: Whidbey Island, WA Dolcetto 2012 $25.00 / Classic Style / "A sassy little Italian number that will tease your tongue with a briarpatch full of berry flavors and elusive notes of pomegranate, vanilla and graphite. Dolcetto is the everyday wine in its native Piedmont and has quickly become a staff favorite here at the winery. Its generous flavors and lively acidity make it a great pair with grilled meats, especially game, and tomato sauced pastas. Molto Italiano." (GOLD: Seattle Wine Awards, 2014.) Source:
