Winemaker's Notes

The Massolino Dolcetto d'Alba displays bright ruby red with deep purplish hues. On the nose, fresh, fruity, sweet and elegant perfumes strongly prevail followed by an expansive and warm entry, opening into a multitude of flavors traceable to a rich and concentrated wine. Naturally dominant fruit and vinous character leaving behind a lingering and pleasant aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

"Juicy yet gripping, offering pure cherry, raspberry and floral flavors. A bit lean on the finish for now, but balanced and supple overall. Needs a few months in the cellar."
