Marcarini Dolcetto D’Alba Fontanazza 2010
We can disagree about if it is the Beatles or the Rolling Stones who made the better music. And feel free to cheer against my team when the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees do baseball battle.
But, if you don’t find something to love about Marcarini Dolcetto D’Alba Fontanazza … well, I don’t think we can be friends
Marcarini Fontanzza 2010 is simply an outstanding representative of everything great about Italian wine – massively food friendly, traditional, terroir-expressive, honest, and above all, delicious.
The wine is produced from Dolcetto grapes grown among the Langhe Hills of Italy’s Piedmont in the area of La Morra – a locale famous for its Barolo wines - at 320m above sea level in a calcareous soil of high magnesium content.
The producer has decided against ageing in wood in order to preserve the wine’s character, aroma, and freshness.
Scents of fresh cherries and violets with delicate notes of brown spice that transfer nicely to the palate. Warm in the mouth, sensations of marzipan, cinnamon, and a persistent finish with the most delicately bitter grace note. An affordable, delicious wine that brings a bit of class to everyday life at table.
