This is a bit reticent on the nose with a dusty mineral character and gentle herbal suggestions floating above the taut blackberry fruit. In the mouth this has laser focus for Dolcetto, with the acidity corralling the fruit and driving the black, lightly spicy fruit into a long finish that shows a gentle herbal top note on the finale. 90pts

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.

Nice textbook dolcetto with blackberry, sour berries and fresh toast. The palate is fresh and vibrant with balanced acidity showing lush blackberry jam and an herbal flavor that led to a fresh dark fruit finish.

This is a great Dolcetto of the dusty, mineral-laden, old school variety. Floral notes are complimented by dark, grapey fruit and a back-bone that is fairly tannic for Dolcetto. The finish offers limestone and chalk mineral character.
