    March 15, 2020 - Purple core. Cassis and blackberry fruit, menthol. Layered, medium weight-pretty extraordinary concentration for Dolcetto. Not quite as exuberant as previously, but still stuffed with fruit and tannin, and a nice herbal twist for complexity. Pleasantly bitter finish. Well above class and expectations, and should you have any left, it promises to be outstanding for another few years.

    July 1, 2019 - Wow, this bottle is in the zone. Dark fruits, black pepper, and strong acidity all presented in style so elegant that you have to remind yourself this is "just" a Dolcetto.

    April 19, 2019 - Another good showing, the primary fruit has calmed down a little. Very good, balanced Dolcetto to drink over the next 2 years or so.

    February 3, 2019 - Dark ruby. Pepper, licorice, and dark fruit. Lush, chocolatey, surprisingly robust acidity, round tannins. Fantastic Dolcetto as it has been every time.

    January 11, 2019 - Whaaaa - this wine needs many hours to really blossom. Color: inky purple - very young. Nose: alcohol, deep black cherry, violets, spice, minerality. Mouth: earthy, dark fruits, medium+ acidity, medium- bodied, tannic finish. Excellent if you like the style/grape. Conclusion: too young - who says dolcetto can't age ??? :-) Another hit from Maria Teresa Mascarello.
