New vintage of this good Dolcetto. Dense red/violet. Concentrated nose dominated ny sweet cherries and "cocktail berries", but with some deeper, earthy or animal notes as well, and some herbal stuff. The cherry fruit follows on in the mouth, with lovely refreshing and well balanced acids. The finish is long and tannic for a Dolcetto, but typical for Roagna.
Still my favourite Dolcetto. It might just be me, but I think it is gettng better with every vintage. This time I MUST try to cellar some bottles for a few years development, It's difficult, because they are so good as they are - it's difficult to leave them alone!
