Mandola Dolcetto 2008

Member Review by tabednar:

Slightly darker red than the Sangiovese but similar aroma of black cherry and blackberry. Medium bodied with a similar taste profile of dark red berries and ends with a smooth, rich finish. Very well done.

2009 Duchman Family Winery Dolcetto The Dolcetto is one of the first wines produced by Duchman. It carries a single vineyard designation from the Bingham Family Vineyard in the High Plains AVA. Outside of Texas, Dolcetto grows in Piedmont in North West Italy and thrives in a slightly cooler climate. Planting this vigorous varietal in the High Plains was an experiment that worked well. The Dolcetto is a light bodied, fruit forward wine with low acidity that sees no oak aging to let its true flavors shine through. I like it served slightly chilled with pasta or pizza. Look: The Dolcetto is light brick red, without a lot of concentration and good clarity. It looks like hearty cranberry juice. Smell: It has bright aromas of cedar and ripe raspberries hanging in the sun. Taste: Perky tastes of black cherry, blueberry and cola play on the tongue it eases into a brief finish. It lacks the heft and tannins of bolder varietals, making it a pleasant wine for easy drinking. Price: $14 Read my full review here: http://whatareyoudrinking.net/2011/10/texas-wine-with-italian-flair-duchman-family-winery/
