Cascina Adelaide Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba Vigna Costa Fiore 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

From old vines, 4-6 day fermentation in stainless with 3-5 pump-overs a day. There is a touch of rubbery reduction on the nose here and the wine retains youthful spicy tones of gooseberry to the dark, earthy fruit and blackberry notes. Very suave in the mouth with tannins that float under the plush fruit, kept fresh with nicely balanced acidity that gives good lift to the spicy herbal green tones and mineral notes embedded in the dark cherry fruit. The finish is clean if short with earthy and cherry pit notes that are a bit simple. A fine example of Dolcetto with good depth and typicity but the touch of reduction is off-putting. 86pts
