Good. Grippy but also seems to have a flabby finish. Don’t think I would buy again.

Flavio's dolcetto is glorious. The terroir shows in the glass with the strength of nature, deep ruby colour and intense, balsamic aromas. The wine is powerful, lively, clean and well balanced. The first sips are dry and masculine with slightly animal and vinous scents, but almost immediately the fruit comes forward, delicately, black and tart cherries, wild plums. Then, the balsamic aromas take over, intense, inhebriating : licorice, anise, eucalyptus, spearmint, seabreeze, mediterranean herbs, blood orange. It's grand. The terroir here shows its royalty, the forty-to-eighty-year vines do the rest to let Flavio work his magic. As the wine breathes in the juice gets softer, putting in light a smooth landscape with strawberries and fresh cream, tobacco and toffee. In the mouth the wine is broad, savoury, alcoholic, deep. Great persistence and length even at day 2 and 3 !
Outrageous pleasure for the price ...
I've definitely gone under the spell !!
