Food Pairings for Altare Dolcetto d'Alba
The 09 is violet, and light (almost pinot-like) in the glass. Blueberry and blackberry aromas, licorice, mineral, earth (wet mold), and a hint of bitter dark chocolate. Light to medium bodied, very elegant, refined and delicate tannins. Tad high on the alcohol (non-conclusive). Complex, much more than you would expect from a Dolcetto d’Alba. Medium long. Wonderful stuff http://bit.ly/pFmj0R
dry but soft, delicate tannins, full taste of cherries and black cherry. Medium-bodied, easy drinking to be appreciated in the summer months, served a little chilled, In Italy it is considered an excellent everyday wine
18000 bottles produced.
