The Dolcetto d'Alba Magna has an intense ruby red color, with purple reflections. The nose has a rich floral scent that is reminiscent of berries, which carries through to the taste.
Enjoy with pizza, simple pastas and chicken. It goes well with gorgonzola or other pungent Italian cheeses. When served slightly chilled, it is a lovely dessert wine but it is not sweet.
Earthy & Spicy
Had ordered it in previous shipment and expected good things based on winemakers notes. Aerated and decanted, but still a very, very young wine. Spot on to recommend with Pizza, not so much on cheeses ... Will be curious to see what it becomes next year, I've re-ordered specifically with that purpose, to see if that BOLDNESS comes through in 2013 versus now.
Smooth & Supple
Ok Dolcetto. Great nose but not enough on the palate. Sort of one-dimensional. Opened up a little with time but still like others better at this price point.
