Bright, deep ruby. Knockout nose combines blackberry, bitter chocolate, mocha, roast coffee, tar and pungent herbs, all lifted by a violet topnote.

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 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
