This classic Dogliani, a perfect example of the kind of wine that makes people in Piemonte happiest, comes from three hectares of Dolcetto that were planted by Anna Maria’s father more than forty years ago, on a south-facing slope of tufo and marl near the Abbona home.  Aromas of sun-warmed blueberries, baked black plums, crushed violets, and black tea alternate with more fleeting suggestions of cocoa dusted almonds, chiodini mushrooms, and fresh white tobacco as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate, the wine is mouthfilling, generous, and supple, with rich, warm black fruit flavors that echo the nose, including ripe amarena cherries, red currants, raspberry jam, and black licorice, all framed in unexpectedly bright red-berry acidity, plummy, velvety tannins, and fine, iron-rich minerality that cleanses the palate, and persists through a long exuberant finish.
