2019 Dolcetto d´Alba, Elio Altare
A young, spicy nose flows up from the glass with notes of ripe blueberries, asphalt, violets and gravel. Pure and fine.
The taste is seedy and fresh with notes of minerals, blueberries, bakelite and a hint of tobacco. Silky tannins. Long and fine.

2019 Dolcetto d´Alba Vigna Bricco Mirasole, Giuseppe Mascarello
A stunning Dolcetto! A deep, cool, complex nose with notes of forest floor, ripe lingonberries, violets, fir wood and saw dust. Very fine.
The taste is young, tight and spicy with notes of lingonberries, rosehips, earth and birch sap. Very long with ripe tannins. Lovely.
