Density of color here is impressive. This has a fruity, wild berry nose, bright and fresh with light mineral and black cherry skin aromas. On entry this is a little pasty on the palate, somewhat extracted but very fresh, and that theme continues on the mid-palate which is a little thick if very fresh, with lots of dark berry fruit supported by a nice edge of tannins, and good acid. There’s lots of blackberry fruit with a blood orange note on the moderately long finish. Certainly well made and impressive, this is a bit heavy and intense for me. 89pts

Drink Now- "The 2011 Langhe Dolcetto Visadi is gorgeous in this vintage. Sweet, silky layers of fruit caress the palate in this expressive, nuanced wine. The 2011 is a little laid back but it is very pretty just the same, as the starting point with this fruit is of a very high level. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015."

Colored a deep, purple red. A fine nose graciously perfumed with notes of blackcurrant, plum, eucalyptus, and a bit of toast. It is warm and soft on the palate, velvety and fresh in the mouth. The tannins are delicate, and rounded by an intense and long finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

Instead of doing two separate bottlings: Dolcetto di Dogliani (from vineyards near the cellar) and Dolcetto d’Alba from the Ginestra vineyard, Clerico declassifies his fruit, producing a Dolcetto di Langhe. Anything but average, Clerico's Visadi goes great with red meat or medium-aged cheeses. Vinification and ageing: Maceration with the skins in temperature-controlled stainless for 4-5 days, maturation in barriques (part new, part old) for 5-6 months
