Massolino Dolcetto d'Alba 2009

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Beautifully focused cherry aromas and flavors are augmented by a kiss of oak in this vibrant, detailed red, which is well-integrated, complex and long for the category. Drink now through 2013. 600 cases imported. -BS Elements of austerity and richness play off each other beautifully in Massolino's 2009 Dolcetto d'Alba. Dark varietal fruit, violets, minerals and mint come together beautifully in the glass. In top vintages this is one of the most intriguing Dolcettos in Piedmont. It easily outperforms what is a very reasonable price tag. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

his wine has a deep red color. It is fresh and ripe with good balance. The clean acidity balances the red and purple berry fruit perfectly.
