I’m a huge fan of Italian wines from the Piedmont region in the north of the country. This is the land of Barbera, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, the famous Barolo, and the easy drinking Dolcetto. I have found that if you are looking for a quality wine from this region is tough to go wrong with one from Brovia.
This Dolcetto wine is very dark purple in color with no translucency. It has a bold nose of dark fruit, initially I got blueberry but as the wine got air the dark cherry came out along with some licorice, light spice and leather. In the mouth the wine is big and bold with dark fruit notes and medium plus grippy tannins. You can definitely feel this wine which high in character with great stucture and really lingers in your mouth. I drank this bottle over the course of two evenings, a little air does it good, I would decant if I planned to drink the bottle in one evening.
