Paitin Rivoli Dolcetto d’Alba 2021
Dolcetto d’Alba opens with gorgeous, sweet aromatics. Tar, smoke, and blueberries emerge from the glass in a Dolcetto with surprising structure and power. There is no shortage of character and personality here. This is a terrific showing from the Pasquero family.
Food match: Perfect with white meat, Risotto, vegan and vegetarian pasta dishes.
“92/100…a beautiful nervy wine that marries pliant varietal fruit with a great deal of structure. Bright red cherry fruit, bloody orange, mint & white pepper lend brilliance to this vibrant, super expressive Dolcetto…terrific & also distinctive.” (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)
