Delightful, amazing value. Time and air were kind. Early gas blew off. Newark Airport rocks. Totally new airport experience!

The smell of sweet late summer, with anise and fennel, ripe bramble fruit, and purple flowers. It’s juicy and black-brambly on the tongue, too, with that characteristic bitter Dolcetto snap. Made from hundred percent Dolcetto grown on on Monte Aribaldo in the commune of Treiso, in a vineyard with a south-facing exposure. It’s ripe and friendly, but the tannins are like corduroy or velour, very sensual but cottony, not too soft, and the acid really makes the wine. Drink now through 2020. 13.5% abv | $20 (sample) | Imported by Dalla Terra

This Dolcetto is strict and papery on the palate. It lacks life, luster and drink-ability, especially at this still-young stage.
