Luigi Pira Dolcetto d'Alba Dolcetto 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark, violets, dark fruit and spicy herbs greet the nose with a mulberry top notes. In the mouth this is a little chewy,though with a nice juicy feel. Rich and fresh and very drinkable in a lightly serious kind of way, this has that dark earthy fruitiness a lot of dolcettos seem to have and is fairly tannic though the tannins pass quickly like jalapeño spice. This has attractive richness and brightness. 87pts

Barrel Sample Spicy on the nose with a lively fruity character, a bit beefy, and spicy with notes of talc, violet and caraway. Great acids on entry balance out the sweetness of very ripe fruit and gently astringent tannins. This is crisp and focused with good energy in the mouth driving the red plum and raspberry fruit across the palate. There are nice notes of violet and earthy spice on the moderately long finish and just a bit of obvious tannin giving this refreshing mouthgrab. 87-88pts

Intense ruby red color with violet reflections. Young, fresh, with fruity and floral tones on the nose. Well-balanced and persistent, long and complex finish.

This ldquo;little sweet onerdquo; is a charming, dry wine from the Piedmont region in Italy. It would enhance roast chicken or grilled salmon.

This bright Dolcetto drsquo;Alba offers fresh fruit and berry flavors on top of rich concentration and a plush, velvety feel. This is a very easy, uncomplicated wine that will pair with most home-cooked pasta dishes.
