G.B. Burlotto Dolcetto d'Alba 2018

A juicy northern Italian red from Cambridge Wine Merchants

G.B. Burlotto Dolcetto d'Alba

North West Italy is home to many of the country's great reds; with forested hills, truffles and game, it is Italy's answer to Burgundy.

If Nebbiolo is Italy's Pinot Noir, hedonistic and gamey, Dolcetto is its Beaujolais; cherry-fruited and juicy.

G.B. Burlotto Dolcetto D.O.C. 2018 (£15.99, Cambridge Wine Merchants)  red berries, cherry fruit and violet aromas; red and black cherry fruit with spice and savoury underpinnings; fresh and lively with fine, rounded and well-integrated tannins. Very elegant, well-made and harmonious.

Will age.

Good.

Match with red meats, such as steak, or pizza.
