We honour the traditional way of making Dolcetto without any oak influence in order to showcase its fresh and fruit driven flavour profile. The 2022 vintage of Dolcetto perfectly embodies its traditional Italian roots. This medium-bodied red wine has a pale purplish colour in the glass, bursting out of the glass with intense aromas of pomegranate, blood orange, sun-dried tomato, blueberry and a hint of milk chocolate on the nose. Flavours of rose petal, cranberry, cedar, and graphite intertwine with a soft tannin structure, all carried by a bright acidity that brings this wine to life. A light but rich texture, and an extremely long finish close the deal on this incredibly well-structured Dolcetto. This is a fantastic food wine, pairing well with your favourite charcuterie plate, Bolognese lasagna, Margherita pizza or eggplant Parmesan. Drinks very well now, and should be enjoyed before 2027 for best results.

Critic's Rating

Not simply a lovely dolcetto but a wine of substance as well, not exactly structured for extended aging but the tension and grip are admirable. Chewy for the grape, full and substantial too, some chalky liquidity and really just a pleasure to sip. Drink 2023-2026. Tasted blind at NWAC2023, June 2023.

  • Connoisseur Note(s):

    Vibrant purple hue and a lovely example of the electric pop Dolcetto can have. Crunchy and vibrant. Tannins verge on too much but pull back nicely. Cool wine. 91 points — Brad Royale, WineAlign
