To quote Eric Asimov of the New York Times: “Left to its own devices, Dolcetto offers what naturally makes it so winning: an object lesson in the very Italian push-pull of blending bitter and sweet flavours, along with an earthiness and a rounded, lightly tannic texture.”

We couldn’t agree more. The 2016 Dolcetto is a medium bodied wine, well balanced and approachable. The wine shows elements of red hard candy, black cherries and blackberries. These fruit notes are balanced with leather and cola characters and develop into a finish that is soft and lingering. We suggest drinking this wine within the next two years.
