The 2010 Dolcetto d'Alba bursts from the glass with a rush of intense, dark varietal fruit. This structured, powerful Dolcetto will remind readers of the wines of 10-15 years ago in its mid-weight, focused personality. Those who appreciate classically built Dolcetto will flip over this delicious wine. The 2010 was bottled at the end of July 2011, and could use more time to settle down. Mascarello ferments the Dolcetto in cement and ages the wine in cask, an approach that is rarely seen today. This is simply beautiful. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
