You love wine – you love Piedmont, right?
Ah, the pleasures of Piedmont: Here, in the land of Benvenuto I found it easy to indulge in the simple delights of the fresh markets, personal interaction with top wine producers, and visits to historic castles.
Dolcetto’s reputation in some quarters as an easy-drinking, even insubstantial, wine is challenged here. This is an elegant example of what Dolcetto can be in the right hands. Perfumed, floral nose with black cherry and anise arising out of the glass. A complex mix that includes blackberry and a dusting of pepper washes across the palate. Finish is longer than I expected it to be, although still a bit tannic. Have with roast pork (porchetto) or a prosciutto-laden pizza. Highly recommended. GT
