Roagna 2005 Dolcetto d’Alba, Piemonte

The name Dolcetto derives from dolcezza, meaning sweetness, and refers to the berries of the varietal, a quality that does not show up in the wines of its seven DOC zones.

Roagna is regarded as a producer of traditional Piemontese wines, and this Dolcetto is no exception. Late harvested grapes are unfiltered. Longer fermentation and maceration are evident in the depth of color and flavor extraction.

A delicate nose of mint and herbs is followed by a mouthful of juicy plum and blackberry. The fruit shows impressive ripeness for this area and stays sharp and fresh right to the mildly bitter forest finish.
