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.
|Appellation:||Dolcetto di Diano d’Alba|
|Vineyard:||Planted in 1985, 1.5 ha|
|Aging:||Wine ages in stainless steel tank until August or September of year following vintage, ages in bottle for 2 to 3 months|
I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
