Dolcetto d'Alba 2018

“I adore the Dolcetto grape – if Piemontese Nebbiolo is as sensual and regal as the finest Burgundian Pinot Noir, then Dolcetto has the immediate drinking, cheerful and uplifting attitude of Beaujolais!  Franco Massolino presides over one of the superstar wineries in the region and he makes a densely fruited Dolcetto from his vineyards in Serralunga d’Alba.  He recalls, “My grandfather had a glass of Dolcetto with every meal [...].” Massolino Senior was spot on and this wine is the finest vintage that I have tasted from this incredible winery to date.” - Matthew Jukes
