Dolcetto D'Alba, 2020
Nose: The aromas of ripe plums and blackberries rise from the glass, modulated by spicy elements and a distinct mineral note.
Palate: The wine is enveloping, round and drinkable, elegant, rich yet balanced and showing good acidity on the finish. There is a distinct aspect of fresh red grapes, surrounded by blackberry and blueberry flavors.
The moderate, ripe tannins give the wine a sense of completeness and mid-weight structure. It finishes with bright acids and elegant lingering tannins.
