Such an underrated gem from Piemonte. Rich black fruit, a savory edge, a mineral undercurrent

Pretty darn good but damn it’s like almond paste in your mouth, so drying.

Lovely Dogliani Dolcetto, offering aromas of bright cherry, cherrywood, and fresh baked bread. Conjures cherry blossom as well. Smoky cherry entry, but decisively mineral in nature with a clove and mushroom mosaic. Tannins abound, but deceptively linger under the palate, all across the roof of your mouth, cedar, marigolds and a baker's chocolate.
