Winemaker Notes:

The Cantina del Pino Dolcetto has a splendid perfume with ruby and garnet colors with a finesse and an interesting nose with jammy flavors and a hint of black pepper and a soft background of mineral. A bouquet of fresh summer fruit with good acidity and a full round finish makes this wine  a perfect one to pair with food.

Ratings & Reviews:


91 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2020 Dolcetto d'Alba is a firm, classically built wine that shows the structure of these old vines in Ovello. Dark cherry, plum, licorice, lavender and spice open with reluctance. This serious, brooding Dolcetto could use another few months in bottle." - Antonio Galloni (Sep 2021)
