Wine AdvocateDolcetto is sometimes considered the ugly duckling of the Langhe. But in a hot vintage such as this, the grape flaunts its inner beauty and charm. The 2017 Dolcetto d'Alba delivers earthy and raw aromas of black fruit, plum and black olive. There are dusty sensations of crushed mineral or granite on the close. The finish offers vibrancy, depth and freshness.
Wine SpectatorA taut and pleasantly astringent version, revealing blackberry, black cherry and subtle chocolate flavors. Pinched finish. Drink now through 2022. 3,500 cases made.
