Bava Dolcetto d'Alba Controvento 2009

External Review by WineExpress.com:

With Barolo and Barbaresco grabbing the spotlight in Piedmont here is wine that doesn't receive nearly enough attention. Dolcetto D'Alba is a distinctly Piedmontese wine. It shows delicacy, a fine fruit and acid balance and a distinct character all for remarkable value. This Dolcetto is produced by Bava, a family owned winery since the 1800's. It shows hints of violets, tart cherry, blackberries and minerals. It's bright enough to even be enjoyed slightly chilled. A perfect match for pizza, pasta and every day fare.

With Barolo and Barbaresco grabbing the spotlight in Piedmont here is wine that doesn't receive nearly enough attention. Dolcetto D'Alba is a distinctly Piedmontese wine. It shows delicacy, a fine fruit and acid balance and a distinct character all for remarkable value. This Dolcetto is produced by Bava, a family owned winery since the 1800's. It shows hints of violets, tart cherry, blackberries and minerals. Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "This youthful expression of Dolcetto offers a dark, concentrated style and a very noticeable mineral tone that slices through the lush blueberry and raspberry aromas. The wine is tonic and vibrant and although there isn’t huge complexity here, there is a good, fresh quality of fruit." It's a perfect match for pizza, pasta and every day fare.
