Bright ruby red in color with deep violet highlights. The perfume is immediate and intense, uncompromisingly vinous and persistent. It is redolent of grape must which, on aging, develops sensations of red forest fruits. The bouquet is dry and full-bodied, elegant and round, with notes of fruit and a wonderfully almondy finish.
Serve with starters, pasta, soups, salamis and cream cheeses.
EXCELLENT Dolcetto - plumy and rich with character.
Ummm.... I always enjoy trying new wines, and I liked it , but I'm just not sure I would seek this out again. Soon after opening, the wine developed a strong cherry-flavored cough syrup taste. That subsided for the most part, but the flavor profile was still something new and unique for me. Again, it was good and I'm glad I had the opportunity to try something new.
About 3 1/2 stars. Nice wine, but would buy better at the price.
