2013 Dolcetto DAlba, Renato Ratti

Sorry, this item is out of stock

Dolcetto may come some way below Nebbiolo in the hierarchy of Piemontese grape varieties, but we're yet to try a better red than this one at this price point from this region. It has a freshness and vibrancy, which can sometimes be lacking in this grape variety, and layers of fruit flavour. Cherry and redcurrant combine with a slight smokiness on the nose and these vibrant fruits carry through onto the palate which is medium in weight and full flavoured. A lovely accompaniment for Italian inspired meat dishes.
