G.D. Vajra Dolcetto d’Alba 2018
'I often say I prefer Dolcetto to Barbera, and the Barbera wines seem to pile up a little at my place, while the Dolcetto tent to get tasted. I’m not very professional at whiles. Importer: CellarHand
Blue and purple fruit, spice and flowers, some liquorice. It’s medium-bodied, stony feel and distinctly ‘mineral’ acidity, tannin is slightly raw and sticky, but it’s still pretty much a baby, and it finishes firm and long, shining with some red fruit as it goes. Such crunch and energy here. It’s a very appealing wine.'
