2021 Dolcetto Di Diano d´Alba Superiore Sori`Pradurent, Claudio Alario
All who is to be trusted in Langhe, says that 2021 is a killer vintage for Dolcetto. This bottle proves the point.
The nose is tight, pure and multi layered with notes of "drottningsylt" (a Swedish coccotion of blueberries and raspberries), Lily of the Valley, bakelite, sweet violets and sun warm rocks. Very fine.
The taste is young and potent with notes of ripe blueberries, iron, violets and warm gravel. Silky tannins. Very long and complex. 6+ years. Glad I bought a bunch.
