There is Dolcetto, and then there is Roagna Dolcetto. I have been drinking this since the 2006 or so vintage and this is the best version yet. Cheap, generous, with snap and juicy dark red fruits. Gulpable with a bowl of pasta, a harmonious pairing with sage spiked lamb bolognese. Only 12% abv!! Back up the truck and drink it right away, this is best fresh and not for aging. #roagna

Crazy value, tons of flavor, lots of fruit, but very grounded by honest earth, light, clean, great with food, scary that they can do this for 17 bucks. Real handmade wine.

Fresh, funk, juicy and bitter on the palate. Great value. BTG at Pizzi starting this week.

"Very terroir!", says Mrs. Grove. Her code for a wine with the good funk.

Maybe a bit too much vanilla, raspberry jam component on the nose. Very fresh acidity which I really like.

Bret, but the good kind. Lots of dark fruit and grippy tannins.

Nice wine and a great value. Sipped throughout our meal at Bestia and it was super food friendly.
