wine of the week

2012 Massolino, Dolcetto d’Alba DOC, Italy

wow Massolino label

With less than three weeks to go before our Italy tour, it’s hard to think (or drink) about anything but the wines of Piemonte. And while I fully intend to lap up my fill of Nebbiolo (especially Barolo and Barbaresco), I am equally excited about drowning myself in the region’s more ‘humble’ grapes – like Dolcetto.  I have been priming myself with a delightful new arrival to our shelves. From its vibrant purple hue, to its exuberant aromas and lush palate, Massolino’s Dolcetto simply oozes with charm. This lighter weight red is perfect for late summer sipping. Fragrant flowers like violets and roses jump out of the glass followed by flavours of juicy blackberries and cherries and finishing with appetizing licorice notes. An underlying stony minerality provides uncommon finesse. Indulge in a pizza and toast la dolce vita with me! – MM

$27.99 (SKU #189274) Available at BC Liquor Stores.
