Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

Always a reliable bottling, the 2005 Dolcetto d'Alba is a deeply flavored effort bursting with expressive varietal notes of blue and black fruits, spices and minerals. Made in a rich, sumptuous style, it is an engaging introduction to this producer's wines.

Medium body, good fruit, but too much acidity to be really enjoyable.

Nice wine, but nothing special. On the nose, it has cherries, some floral scents and oak. On the palate, it is medium body, velvety texture, but a bit hollow. Needs to be decanted (around 1 hour). Don't know why RP said it's outstanding...it's very good indeed....but not outstanding.

About This Producer


Long esteemed as a leading producer of the Piedmont, Luciano Sandrone is sometimes mislabeled a "modernizer" of the of the region. In truth, he is more of a relaxer of the mediums that make the wines here long-lived, but difficult to get around in their youth. The wines combine the lovely floral and leather/spice aromatics typical of Barolo with balanced red and dark fruit that is liberally dosed with appealing high-toned acidity.
