It is a traditional Dolcetto that emphasises well the characteristics of a wine obtained from a careful and powerful vinification. The color is ruby with violet reflections. The scent is intensive and lengthy with fresh fruit aromas and accentuated presence of wild cherry. The taste is harmonious and the wine is well structured with an agreeable combination of acidity and a typical bitter aftertaste.
Recommended with all dishes, particularly hot Piemontese hors d'ouvres, strong tasting pasta, rice dishes and white meat dishes.
"Good full ruby. Very ripe aromas of black cherry, blackberry, licorice and violet. Large-scaled but not at all over the top, with solid but ripe acidity framing the sweet flavors of dark berries and violet. Shows a serious tannic structure for this bottling. "Two thousand nine is a wonderful, complete vintage, rich in all elements," noted Alex Sanchez."
