Wine Description

88 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011 Dark red-ruby. Enticing aromas of black cherry, licorice and menthol, with a minty nuance emerging with air. Juicy, brisk and linear; quite dry and focused, with acidity to the fore. In a very fresh style. "Two thousand ten was challenging for dolcetto owing to rain and cold weather at the end of August," noted Sandrone. "We threw half of the grapes on the ground. But the quality of the rest was surprising." 90 Points | Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
