This show off a fine lipstick scented nose, waxy and rosy with a fine grassy notes accenting it’s red fruit. Dusty peppercorn notes appear early on the smooth palate, which is joined by mineral red berry fruit that shows real, cut on the palate. This is perfumed in the mouth with bright acids, succulent red berry fruit, and a hint of spice on the backend. The finish is fairly long with plenty of black spice, tense in a very precise and detailed presentation. 91pts

The nose showed crushed blackberry, floral notes, wild herbs and earth with a rustic twist. On the palate, it was medium bodied with plush blackberry fruits and a bit of tart citrus, which coated the senses and lasted through the long finish. The wine's structure could be felt in the close as hints of tannin clung to the palate.


Winemaker's Notes:

89 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): (bottled in July, along with the 2009 Barbera and the 2008 Barolo): Medium bright red. Very primary aromas of black cherry, minerals, licorice, flowers and leather. Juicy and penetrating, with medicinal black cherry flavor intensified by strong acidity. 'Lighter than the 2009 dolcetto, and good for everyday drinking,' noted Maria-Teresa Mascarelo. This very pure wine grew on me. (Oct/Nov 2011)
