Editorial Reviews for Massolino Dolcetto d'Alba
To ensure a softer style they extract the grape seeds after a day and half of fermentation, then again after three days Super spicy, floral, and fruity on the nose with a black spice character hinting at licorice with a huge rush of currant fruit. Round and a bit soft in the mouth, this shows nice depth of fruit in an easy going style that lacks some precision on the palate. It does have a great, easy drinking texture, a bit peachy and plummy flavored with some nice piquant, grape skin tannins, and a bit of sweetness to the fruit that leads to a touch of heaviness on the palate. The hint of plushness makes this very easygoing, a bit too easy for me but this should prove very popular. 87pts
