Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Dolcetto d'Alba 2015

Member Review by KrisChislett:

The Borgogno Dolcetto d’Alba 2007 showed damp earth, with black olives, truffle and ripe plum on the nose. Very rustic in style on the palate, and certainly showed more fruit after a bit of vigorous swirling in the glass. A mix of savory and earthy qualities, eventually revealing blackberry, plum, a hint of ripe raspberry, old wood, with a certain leathery and nutty-almond quality toward the finish. The best Dolcetto d’Alba that has ever graced my lips! I could drink this all night!

The warm weather in 2005 made this a truly exceptional wine. It's richer on the palate than your typical Dolcetto, with dark berries and even a lightly tannic finish. This varietal is always a fine choice when you need a red to pair with aged cheeses, olives and cured meats.
