The color is a ruby red with violet highlights. On the nose it is fruit-forward with notes of currants, raspberries, blackberries and prunes. On the palate, it is well-balanced with sweet tannins and good acidity. Pairs well with appetizers, pastas, white meats, red meats and roasts.
"The 2012 Dogliani San Luigi is deep, rich, flavorful and beautiful. Dark red cherry, plum, spices, tobacco and menthol all wrap around the palate in an absolutely gorgeous Dolcetto with tons of pure appeal. There is plenty of Dogliani richness, but with less weight than in some of the other wines. The textured finish is especially inviting. Sweet floral notes, a hint of spice and raspberry jam add the final notes of complexity in a drop-dead gorgeous wine."

"The beautifully defined black cherry and black pepper flavors are matched to a firm backbone of tannins in this dense red. A serious Dolcetto, with depth and length. Drink now through 2017. 3,900 cases made."
"This lovely Dolcetto is delicious, fresh and utterly drinkable. It has a classic fragrance of strawberry, cherry and licorice, all of which carry over to the palate, along with earthy notes and a hint of almond. Made to be enjoyed young, this pairs perfectly with pasta dishes and pizza. "
