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.

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).

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

Tannic but still not bad. Dark fruit - black cherry and plum.

Dolcetto doesn’t get any better than this. Blackberry and spice - super concentrated - more than most Dolcettos. Drink this while you’re waiting for your Barolo to age. Vajra is a great producer - everything they make is good. 2017 vintage on Jun 18, 2019
