The Dolcetto Munfrina is one of the finest Dolcetti produced in Italy today. The
wine is supple and solid with huge extracted fruit that melts over the palate like milk
chocolate from a chocolate chip cookie just out of the oven. The raspberry, dark
cherry, tobacco, and lavender flavors are soft and mature with a velvety quality that
can only be described as elegance in a bottle. Luscious and thick, bold and powerful,
complex and balanced, full of bright young fruit and still brimming with a multi-
faceted character seldom achieved with this grape varietal. This wine is truly a
wonder of winemaking. It is the perfect partner for a variety of dishes ranging from
heavier fowl, light and dark meats, stew, rabbit, venison, wild boar, red-sauced pasta,
pizza and even with rich cheese and bread.
"The 2009 Dolcetto d'Alba Munfrina is a beautiful bottle of wine. This is Pelissero's more traditional Dolcetto. The marriage of firm, tense structure and the warmth of the vintage make for a wonderfully complete, harmonious wine. Varietal dark fruit, tobacco, new leather and licorice linger on the firm, nuanced finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014."
