Even Dolcetto's hue speaks to its easy going nature, with a deep and bright ruby color inviting a sip. The nose is spicy and very berry, with a hint of spice mingling with blackberry aromas that waft from the glass. On the palate, there is a perception of hard-candy sweetness that mingles with a beautifully balanced acidity and soft tannin structure. Concentrated black raspberry and plum preserve flavors are interlaced with a subtle earthy minerality that leaves a lasting impression of raspberry, a hint of "red vine" licorice and toasted almonds at last sip. Dolcetto is the perfect picnic wine, a delightful interlude between white and heavier red wines at a multi-course dinner and the ultimate complement to pizza, which is our featured recipe! Enjoy in its youth and serve either at cellar temperature or even slightly chilled.

Wine Advocate

Starting off the reds, the 2011 Dolcetto is a rich, rounded and quaffable effort that delivers loads of ripe cherry, strawberry, bramble and rose petal-like aromas and flavors in a medium-bodied, easygoing package. It's delicious and should be enjoyed over the coming year or two. Drink now-2015.
