2015 Abbazia Dolcetto d'Alba D.O.C
Just seeing the word Alba makes us excited. Known as the gourmet capital of Italy, many things come from Alba that bring us tremendous joy. White truffles, savory cheeses, homemade pastas, roasted meats that make our mouths water, and exquisite wines to go with it all. From Alba, we turn to Dolcetto to enjoy for a nightly meal. Known as the “Shy” Italian, it drinks one way, simply to be enjoyed. It is not like its sister variety, Nebbiolo, which is far too complex and requires too much thought and attention. Here, you can enjoy wines from Alba, especially Dolcetto, for what it is, a great wine to enjoy, now. What to expect from Dolcetto? It simply drinks beautifully when paired with anything with tomatoes. Even though Dolcetto means ‘little sweet one’: this wine is dry and definitely not little. Flavors of blackberry and boysenberry flow through its velvety mouthfeel with a firm finish.
