Fratelli Barale Dolcetto d'Alba Bussia 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

An old sub variety of Dolcetto with red jacks that is very virus resistance with a very savory flavor. Aged for eight or nine months in ten Hl oak barrels Blue violets appear immediately on the nose followed by sour plum and wild cherry fruit that shows great freshness topped by aromatic eucalyptus like notes with hint of brick and green peppercorn.With  bright acidity, fine firm tannins supporting deep fruit in the mouth, this is very aromatic, layered and rich without being heavy. In fact this is a bit of a powerhouse graced with a long precise mineral laden fresh wild plum finish that shows a hint of balsam on the finale. Heck of a wine. 91pts
