The name of the grape tells you all you need to know about this wine: Dolcetto, the “little sweet one.” This lovely little grape turns into lovely little wines, and Il Palazzotto’s Sörì Cristina may just be the sweetest Dolcetto we offer. Winemaker Paolo Olivero, a Dolcetto specialist, takes great care in his vines and in his cellar to consistently produce soft, supple wines with freshness and finesse. Open a bottle and be seduced by aromas of black cherry and rose petal that will keep you coming back for more.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:
1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
