Quite dark in color and on the slighly viscous side; red and blue fruit on the nose with liquorice, cow stable scents, and sweet candy notes; medium alcohol (feels higher than the 12.5%), and acids, cherries and blueberries, and a nutty medium-long finish. Well made and true to the saying that Dolcettos are the Italian Beaujolais (which I usually don’t agree with).

Primary medium intense, youthful aromas. Red fresh fruit, very inviting, cherries, strawberries, mint, dried herbs and a crushed Stone minerality.
Dry palate, medium tannins that takes a first grip but wears of through the entry phase, medium acidity, medium alcohol and equal flavour intensity, red fruit, herbs and rocks. Medium lenght finish
Drinks well but Will age 5 years.
