Paolo Conterno Dolcetto d'Alba L'Alto 2018
WA88: The Paolo Conterno 2018 Dolcetto d'Alba l'Alto is packed with plump and rich fruit. Blackberry confit and cherry preserves give the wine easy-drinking appeal. Earthy tones and some mild tobacco also appear. Fruit is sourced from 25-year-old vines. Winemaking starts in stainless steel and ends with a quick seven months in botte grande.
VM89: The 2018 Dolcetto d'Alba L'Alto is a powerful, heady wine that has enough structure and overall depth to pair with a wide range of foods. Black cherry, smoke, licorice and dark spice bring out the more virile side of Dolcetto nicely.
