Nose has ripe blackberry, wet leather, wet metallic rocks and shaved dark chocolate.
Palate has ripe blueberry, tannic blackberry, hibiscus tea with medium tannins and a long finish. Impressive wine.
Color is amazing, dark purple, almost could be viewed as CA Syrah or Spanish Grenache. A gifted bottle from a Tastevin brother who's come to know my palate, a delicious offer. Best Dolcetto I've tasted, weighty and beautiful, yet youthful. — 3 days ago
Intense blackberries and black cherries, dark purple color, dash of anise, chocolate and plum. White pepper.
Something initially on the nose; green peppers, mushrooms, barnyard? But it mellowed out after a few minutes.
Soft, smooth, silky...very nice. — 3 days ago
Altare’s 2018 Dolcetto d'Alba offers terrific varietal character to match its mid-weight personality. The 2018 is a bit lighter than most editions - that is the vintage - but it also has tons of nuance in its dark plum, leather, cedar, licorice and tobacco flavors. This is classic Dolcetto. $20.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2020) — 2 days ago
A heady menagerie of fruit and floral aromas, intense fruit flavors balanced by a driving acidity. Raspberry, plum, cherry, and blackberry, both fresh and candied characteristics. Oak further balances the fruit further but plays nicely and I want more — 3 days ago
