Dolcetto 2014

Dolcetto 2014

Winemaker Notes

New Release
This bright, savory and refined Dolcetto bursts from the glass with notes of ripe plum, cherry, fruit leather, and lavender. These notes translate to the palate with silky tannins that round out the body. A richer, less acidic Dolcetto, the 2014 vintage still offers up the clean and racy style that pairs so well with Italian fare. Drink now or in the near term.
