Dolcetto from winemaker Marco Destefanis is about as close as you can come to tasting just how pure this Piedmontese grape can be without picking it off the vine yourself. Spicy, juicy and always chock-full of purple pleasure, Destefanis Dolcetto represents one of our finest quality/price finds from Piedmont.
More punch and muscle. "Vigna Monia Bassa" represents a selection of older, lower yielding vines that are the best exposed of winemaker Marco Destefanis' vineyards. Concentrated and complex, with suggestions of huckleberries, licorice and vanilla on the palate.
"Full red-ruby. Sexy, complex, soil-driven aromas of dark berries, minerals, dark chocolate, smoked meat and tobacco. Rich and tactile in the mouth, with a subtle sweetness and noteworthy lift to the intriguing currant, smoke and meat flavors. A substantial, soil-driven wine that finishes broad and dry, with considerable dusty tannins and plenty of energy. No rush to drink this."
