#3 of Smithsonian Associates Wines of France and Italy tasting of Northern Italy wines. Very unique and long, smooth finish.

Great value for such a delicious medium bodied wine. Notes of currants and cherries on the palate with balanced tannins and a moderate finish.

Possibly needs a little more time to show its potential.

A really nice wine has a very distinct plum taste with earth, woody after taste, quite acid tart, but this disappears with food. Having this with a nice medium rare steak with red wine jus.

Have been to Piedmont and this is a perfect example of structured Dolcetto. I'm aging another bottle. It can only get better

Meu primeiro Dolcetto... Foi uma experiência legal pois não conhecia a uva e, pela região, esperava algo mais mineral. Realmente é muito doce mas mesmo assim gostei.

I don't love Dolcetto's but I keep going back to this one for something slightly different. I avoid their more expensive Dogliano, called Bricco Botti, precisely because its higher extraction and alcohol spoils everything that makes the San Luigi so appealing and drinkable. The flavor concentration and light body on this one and the price point ($16-18) is spot on.
