Winemaker Notes

Ruby red with an abundance of violet reflections. Intense bouquet with trace scents of cherry and ripe plum. Balanced, fresh, rightly tannic, fragrant and lush, leaving a pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

A wine for all tables, particularly suited for Italian style appetizers, first courses and fresh cheeses.

Honeyed plum and cherry flavors fill out this lush young dolcetto, a juicy red to serve with landjäger sausages or other cured meats.

This bright Dolcetto from Renato Ratti opens with a dark, inky color and well concentrated fruit aromas of blueberry and cherry. Those big fruit tones are enhanced by the wine’s full color and polished finish. Very nice and well priced too.

The Wine Advocate

Ratti's 2009 Dolcetto d'Alba Colombe is made in a plump, fruit-driven style informed by generous dark blueberries, blackberries, spices and licorice. It is best enjoyed in its vinous, extroverted youth. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013.
