description: A lovely, star-bright ruby, deep and lustrous. A generous, warm bouquet features a wide-ranging panoply of aromas, releasing

lively notes of redcurrant, raspberry, cherry, and violets. Pungent nuances of underbrush, rosemary, and wild herbs complete a complex

and fragrant offering. It expands to notable depth and breadth in the mouth, with a judicious acidity bolstering dense fruit and an impressive

structure. An almost endless finish edged with hints of earth simply caps a very delicious wine. Overall, a Dolcetto of great distinction and body

and with a pronounced vein of minerality. Serving suggestions: the complexity of this wine makes it an ideal partner to fine meat dishes, hot

antipasto dishes of some richness, and main courses of meat.
