JAMES SUCKLING 90 POINTS - "Roasted herbs, elderberry pie and spices. Full-bodied with plenty of fruit-compote flavors and a fruity finish."
Call it a soapbox, but we think Dolcetto is one of the world's great misunderstood wines. Is it because the wines are grown in Piedmonte in the shadow of the great Nebbiolo wines of Barolo and Barbaresco? Is it because Dolcetto is rarely meant to be aged? The virtues in this bottling from Pecchenino are obvious with a purity of blueberry fruit and violet perfume wrapped in a satiny texture that would seduce many a Pinot-lover.
