Cascina Delle Rose Dolcetto d'Alba "A Elizabeth" 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Violet, almond, and damson plum skin are all layered over a lightly earthy base note on the finely delicate nose. Showing pretty big fruit up front, this is quite ripe and even a little jammy in the mouth, though fine tannins and firmly integrated acids add some backbone on the midpalate where this gains a lovely earthy purity. The crisp little tannins pop on the backend where this gains a lovely vinous quality. The finish shows some warmth but is also quite complex with hints of iris and beetroot accenting the core of earthy berry fruit. This still has room to grow. 91pts

All SS, barrel sample High toned and focused on the nose with floral aromas that show excellent freshness. The palate delivers ripe fruit with hints of fresh leather, woodland spice, and  forest floor, showing an excellent, lively quality the defines the pure and fresh potential of Dolcetto. This is young and still fairly grapy with beautiful lacy tannins and zesty acids for support. 90pts

Assertively earthy, spicy, and violet driven on the nose this also shows  a little tobacco smoke top note over aromas of freshly crushed berry and plum fruit.  Elegant in the mouth and with great transparency, this strikes just the perfect weight and balance, with gorgeous purity of fruit, almost sweet with ripeness, and layered with plum, mulberry and spiced cherry flavors. This is about as good as Dolcetto gets. 92pts
