Elvio Cogno Dolcetto d'Alba 2010

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Inky purple, this is a concentrated, tannic red that displays juicy black cherry and cherry flavors. Just a bit pinched on the finish now, but should open nicely. Drink now through 2016. 200 cases imported. -BS (done entirely in stainless steel): Good bright red-ruby. Slightly metallic aromas of cherry and licorice, with a green, herbal side. Juicy and bright but dry and a bit pinched, with a medicinal black cherry flavor dominating. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry. Could use a bit more flesh and personality. Color: Deep ruby red with deep purple hueBouquet: Dry and full-bodied, elegant and round, with notes of fruit and a wonderfully almondy finishFlavor: It is dry, full, elegant and round in the mouth, with hints of fruit and a pleasantly intense almond finish - WineryPairings: Serve it with hors d'oeuvre, cream soups, cured meats and fresh cheesesVarietal: 100% DolcettoAlcohol Content: 13% ** SOLD OUT **
