Poderi Elia, Dolcetto d'Alba D.O.C.
(dohl-CHAY-toh DAHL-bah)

 

Tasting Notes: From winemaker Federico Stella comes this truly wonderful Dolcetto. Clean, stinging rhubarb, pleasant toastiness, and bright red fruits with a nice touch of sweet cigar smokiness. Very smooth, with the “cashmere” tannins that Stella so gracefully presents in his wines, this Dolcetto is a perfect example of classic Piemonte style for an everyday wine.
