Its a Dolcetto, it is supposed to be simple and it is. While very good, how can Antonio Galloni give it a 90? He seems to like anything Italian. 17 bucks seems a lot for something that would cost a few Euros in Italy, but this is Canada. The name means "walnut floors" - go figure.
Everything is aligned in this Dolcetto. It's tart, but very fine and firm tannins line up beautifully with the acid and red berry fruit. Lighter in body but big on impression and finish, this well structured and tight wine is not abundantly layered but does evolve in the glass and palate. Shellfish and tomato sauce risotto or dark meat poultry with wild mushrooms would suit. Drink now till 2014, tasted Jan '12.
