Purchased at the winery, a favorite from a Piedmonte trip. Nose of cool plum, cracked pepper, dark berry fruit and leather. Palate is juicy and rich, with a balance of acidity and chalky tannins. Licorice and forest berries bounce around. More complexity than other examples from the region. Outstanding QPR.

I reaaaally like this. Tastes like an old shoe. But the good kind like you want.

Finally, the first two bottles was cork tainted... but the third one was fantastic!

Unripe blackberries, red plum, earth, and leather. Black tea finish. Broody and opaque until it is properly decanted.

Bigger, bolder style of dolcetto! Black and boysenberry fruit, even tar and leather hints. Powerful, dry, with ripe and juicy fruits. Hints of black tea on the finish. A favorite we brought home from a recent trip to Serralunga and visit to the winery. Pair with a richer meat and cheese charcuterie board.

Väldigt sträv, syrligt körsbärig. Lite tunn. Känns obalanserad.
