2018 Dolcetto From Bartolo Mascarello & Brovia

2018 Dolcetto d´Alba, Bartolo Mascarello
A direct, lovely nose with notes of fresh red currants, cranberries, incense and earth. Lively and very fine.
The taste is cool and dry with notes of spices, assorted red berries and candle grease. Silky tannins. Sooo drinkable from the get go. Very, very good.

2018 Dolcetto d´Alba Vignavillej, Brovia
Alex has fashioned a more sturdy Dolcetto with grapes from Serralunga. The nose is deep and focused with notes of blueberries, cranberries, licorice and asphalt. Very fine.
The taste is tight and structured with notes of ripe blueberries, bakelite, iron and herbs. Balanced and fine. Very fine tannins that show themselves in the finish. 5+ years.
