This is a great example of a clean, honest and incredibly well priced Dolcetto. It comes from Paolo Olivero, a true Dolcetto specialist whose five hectares of vines are planted mostly to the grape along with smaller amounts of Barbera, Nebbiolo and Roero Arneis. His small farm, which also includes six hectares of hazelnut trees, sits at the top of the small village of Diano d'Alba, the area that achieved DOCG status in 2005. This 2013 vintage has a pretty floral and vibrant nose with succulent redcurrant flavors on the medium bodied palate. It was fermented and then aged in stainless steel for a year, and in bottle for another three months before release, allowing just the elegant fruit to come through. The wine ends with a fresh, bright note of acidity making it very drinkable on its own or perfect with Piemontese cuisine.
