Cru Beaujolais on the nose — roses, raspberries and blueberries, cotton candy, and wild herbs. Bright ruby in sight. Elevated acidity, moderate plus to elevated tannins, full body (14.5% abv).

Pure pleasure, love this wine 😸. Structured, complex, lengthy expression of Dolcetto. Firm tannin, deeply mineral, lots of sweet herbal notes, juicy black fruit, cinnamon, fresh earth.

Surprisingly wonderful dolcetto. Dark cherries, earth, and vanilla on the nose. Medium body and soft balance. Paired amazingly with steak tartar.

Serious dolcetto. If dolcetto is Italy’s Beaujolais, this is a cru.

A more serious Dolcetto than I have had, harsh though definitely needs more time. But could be good
