Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, December 2009
Bright deep ruby. Knockout nose combines blackberry bitter chocolate mocha roast coffee tar and pungent herbs all lifted by a violet topnote. Large-scaled and fat with fruit but boasts solid acidity for such ripe grapes... Bright deep ruby. Knockout nose combines blackberry bitter chocolate mocha roast coffee tar and pungent herbs all lifted by a violet topnote. Large-scaled and fat with fruit but boasts solid acidity for such ripe grapes (this has nearly 15% alcohol). Zero sign of barrique influence here. Finishes with broad serious chewy tannins and mouthcoating length. This wonderfully sweet dolcetto should last for a good decade.

The 2007 Dolcetto d'Alba Solatio is a dark inky offering loaded with jammy black fruits licorice leather chocolate menthol and minerals. Today the wine comes across as quite dense and needing at least another year or so... The 2007 Dolcetto d'Alba Solatio is a dark inky offering loaded with jammy black fruits licorice leather chocolate menthol and minerals. Today the wine comes across as quite dense and needing at least another year or so in bottle in order to develop the full range of its aromatics. The estate makes its Dolcetto d'Alba Solatio only in vintages that allow for a late harvest from old low-yielding plants in the Brea vineyard in Serralunga. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015. -Antonio Galloni
