Pietra Santa Dolcetto Cienega Valley 2004
In the Piedmont region of Italy, a Dolcetto is often found on restaurant tables because the grape's berry and spice flavors and natural acidity make the wine a natural accompaniment for meals. Our Estate Dolcetto features ripe plum and blackberry flavors with undertones of almond and licorice. The wine is full-bodied with soft tannins and a lingering finish.
Editorial Reviews for Pietra Santa Dolcetto Cienega Valley
This seems dominated by wood notes on the nose with burnt candle, tarry asphalt and coffee liquor notes. A touch reductive with slow to emerge herbal, clover tones and plum jam fruit. Smooth and plush in the mouth with a solid tannic core but also fairly rich so there is good balance here This could benefit from a few years ageing, deep dark fruit with cocoa, plum, prune, and juniper notes, a bit candied but with a powerful finish that offers up jammy plum and toast tones. 87pts
Very fruity, light with gently, silky tannins. Had an intriguing nose of wet wool and meat with some sweet floral undertones. Very drinkable, and the crowd favorite of the night (also the third bottle, so who can tell)...
Pronounced peppery nose with vigorous plumb body, light tannins and light acidity complement the mild sugars and smoky release.
Had the 2004 vintage. Seems to be past its prime with mostly a woody flavor and almost no fruit.
Smooth, peppery, good with a meal or on its own
