Wine Review: This dark red colored Dolcetto is an old school Italian wine. It opens with a musty cranberry and old oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very easy to enjoy. The flavor profile is a gentle mineral and cedar influenced tart red cherry. I also detected a hint of red currant. The finish is dry and barely has any tannin. While not overly complex, this is a very nice food friendly Italian red wine. I can see this pairing nicely with Braciole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: Bright ruby red with deep purplish hues. Bouquet: Fresh, fruity, sweet and elegant perfumes strongly prevail. Flavour: Expansive and warm entry, opening into a multitude of flavours traceable to a rich and concentrated wine. Naturally dominant fruit and vinous character leaving behind a lingering and pleasant aftertaste. It is best to serve it at temperatures between 18-20 C. In keeping with Langa tradition this wine is ideal with all courses of a meal. It is also perfect for snacks featuring cured meats and cheeses.
