Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby colored Dolcetto opens with an attractive rich, melted dark chocolate bouquet with hints of strawberry in background. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is oak influenced dark chocolate covered blackberry with notes of chalky minerality. I also detected a hint of plum towards the end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite some time. This Dolcetto would pair nicely with eggplant bolognese. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: Bright ruby red with deep purplish hues
Bouquet: Fresh, fruity, sweet, and elegant perfumes strongly prevail
Flavor: Expansive and warm entry, opening into a multitude of flavors traceable to a rich and concentrated wine. Naturally dominant fruit and vinous character leaving behind a lingering and pleasant after taste.
Food Pairings: A perfect match for snacks featuring cured meats and cheeses, or pasta, rice, soup, and red meats.
