The 2016 Dogliani San Luigi is terrific. Fresh, aromatically expressive and yet with plenty of depth, the 2016 captures all the richness that is typical of Dolcettos from Dogliani while avoiding the excess weight that can plague some wines. Blue and purplish varietal fruit, lavender, spice and menthol are nicely pushed forward in this very pretty, mid-weight wine.

Aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, earth and spice are the hallmarks of this juicy red. Approachable now, with some tannins on the finish. Decant now or cellar short-term. Drink now through 2021. 3,917 cases made.

This is the perfect wine to serve when you are making homemade pizzas or barbecuing in the backyard. The 2016 Dogliani San Luigi is packed tight with red fruit intensity and a robust mouthfeel that wraps thickly over the palate. Dolcetto is a very versatile grape with an authentic Italian personality.

This dolcetto bursts from the glass in a purple haze of violet and blueberry scents. It feels perfectly ripe, the plummy fruit fresh and juicy. Gum-tightening tannins give the wine structure, while a hint of hazelnut lends pleasant bitterness.
