Massolino Dolcetto d'Alba 2012 750ml
Massolino Dolcetto d'Alba 2012 750ml
Price: $22.99
Currently Unavailable

2012 is one of the best recent vintages for Dolcetto, the grape that makes a deceptively sweet-smelling wine with a very dry palate, and Massolino is one of the best. Deriving from a six-acre Serralunga plot, the grapes for this wine ferment in stainless steel, the better to evoke their terrior, and Massolino removes about two-thirds of the seeds for softer, rounder tannins. Extraordinary perfume bursts from the glass of this ’12, and its palate of juicy red fruit, licorice, pepper, and scorched earth lead into a velvety, mineral-laden finish. Delicious now, this wine will grow even more charming in a few years.
