Dark ruby color with violet reflex.

Intense, persistent and fruity, dominated by the cerry, red and black currant and redberry.

Full bodied, elegant and well balanced. Intense and structured with typical almond aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Dolcetto Dogliani Sori San Martino bursts from the glass with dark red cherries, menthol, spices and a host of other balsamic nuances that are woven together beautifully. Even though the 2008 is a relatively mid-weight vintage, the San Martino reveals gorgeous depth and complexity in its aromas and flavors. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015. "
