Cascina Corte Pirochetta Vecchie Vigne Dogliani Superiore 2012
You may have had Dolcetto before but you've not likely had a Dolcetto like this. No soft and fruity number, it was the biggest revelation in my last scouting trip to Northern Italy. I just had another bottle and it's awesome!
The name is a mouthful, and so is the wine. This is serious Dolcetto, with significant structure more in line with Nebbiolo. Blackberries, crushed flowers, truffles, licorice, minerals, creating a match for lamb or anything else hearty you can put on a plate. Expect this to age for a decade.
