Prunotto Dolcetto d’Alba DOC 2012

Other Red from Italy - Piedmont
Review Date : 08-Oct-2014
Moderately deep ruby-red, youthful in appearance. The nose is lifted and up-front with fresh primary aromas of raspberry and dark red berry fruits along with floral and jammy whole berry fermentation elements, forming a tight core. Medium-bodied, the flavours of sweet and aromatic dark red fruits are enriched by some jam, confectionary and floral nuances. The acidity is soft, allowing the firm and somewhat blocky tannins to prevail. The extraction provides structure and a good line that leads to a vibrantly fruity finish. This is a sweet and lively Dolcetto with underlying firmness. 3-4+ years. 100% Dolcetto from Barbaresco, Treiso, Alba and Monforte d’Alba fermented to 12.5% alc., and bottled without oak. 17.5/20 Oct 2014 RRP $26.95
