I was cruising around one of my favorite wine shops in OC and a bottle of Dolcetto caught my eye. It’s not a wine I drink often, but after talking with the wine shop’s owner, I was convinced I was long overdue for a glass or two.
Massolino Dolcetto d’Alba 2008 is a Dolcetto from Serrlunga D’Alba in Italy. The wine has 13.5% alcohol and retails for around $20. For more information see www.Massolino.it
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
The Dolectto pours a brilliant ruby color in the glass. It has an intoxicating, fruit forward nose filled with dark fruit and floral notes. At first sip, my mouth is in heaven. Tastes of black cherry, dark chocolate, blueberry, and violet awaken my taste buds. The wine is silky, smooth, and balanced. A beautifully made wine that I will savor until the last sip.
