Azienda Agricola Boasso, Dolcetto D'Alba, 2019

In Stock Now!

Dolcetto, of Piedmont origin, means "little sweet" but the grape is usually vinified dry. It can be crafted to make diverse styles, from a light, fruity wine for serving chilled to a concentrated, oaked wine for ageing. Here it’s unoaked but has plenty of concentration. It’s from a small plot of 32 year old vines just north-west of Serralunga. Ripe black fruit scent. Lots of lively fruit flavour – blackberry and blueberry – backed by a bite of tannin. Bold, crunchy, slightly wild, this needs food; think ham or salume, pork belly or duck. Does Italy make the best rustic wines? Discuss while drinking this with bucolic grub such as tagliatelle and wild boar ragu. Now-2023

"This wine was a delightful surprise. I assume Dolcetto will be light, red-fruited and simple. That is not the case here. Boasso - with 32 year old vines - have transformed the varietal into something more serious and impressive, an intense wine full of blackcurrant and cherry with a pleasing tannic bite. This wine will be partnering my platters of cured meat and hearty pasta dishes for the foreseeable future",  Michael Peet, SVS
