Dolcetto In Langhe

These bottles were tasted at the apartment during my trip to Piedmont in September of last year, see the visits I made below.

2019 Dogliano Superiore Tecc, Luigi Einaudi
A inky, deep nose with lots of ripe blueberries, herbs, tiles and gravel. Very, very good.
The taste is tight and savoury with notes of blueberries, iron and bay leaves. Long and fine.
91p   (tasted 2022/09)

2017 Dogliani Superiore San Bernardo, Anna Maria Abbona
Judgement referred. A big, blowsy nose with cooked fruit and warm asphalt notes.
The taste is large scaled and seedy with tanninsc, warmth and a long, cooked finish. Not an ok bottle I would guess.

2020 Dogliani Pianezzo, La Collina di Marengo
A young, fruity nose with notes of damsons, earth, forest floor and hints of rubber. Very good.
The taste is herbal and dry with notes of damsons, gravel and leather. A tad dry on the finish.
85p   (tasted 2022/09)

2020 Dogliani Diavolo Rosso, Bricco Bracchi
A deep, handsome nose with a mix of rasp- and blueberries, summer warm asphalt, herbs and iron. Pure and fine.

2021 Dogliani Zovetto, Raineri
A young, seedy nose with notes of licorice, violets, blackberries and iron. Spicy and fine.

2021 Dogliani Papà Celso, Marziano Abbona
A large scaled, tight nose with notes of ripe blueberries, herbs, forest floor and a hint of mint. Very, very good.
