Review:

You may have had Dolcetto before but you've not likely had a Dolcetto like this. No soft and fruity number, it was the biggest revelation in my last scouting trip to Northern Italy. I just had another bottle last night and it's awesome! I like it so much that I'm offering 15% off!

The name is a mouthful, and so is the wine. This is serious Dolcetto, with significant structure more in line with Nebbiolo. Blackberries, crushed flowers, truffles, licorice, minerals, creating a match for lamb or anything else hearty you can put on a plate. Expect this to age for a decade.

Oh yes, and one small thing...Three Glasses from Italy's prestigious Gambero Rosso 2011. Of the 20,000 wines tasted, only 2% received Three Glasses, and this is among the cheapest! Here's what they wrote: "Young but already highly enjoyable, it will age splendidly. This label is living proof that Dolcetto is not a simple wine, giving blackberry fruit and cocoa powder aromas, a potent, full palate finishing long, with freshness and almondy notes. - Marcus
