Mandorlo Dolcetto d’Alba DOC – 2013 – 91 points, Top Wines of 2014 – Snooth.com
“The Snooth Team has had the honor of tasting and reviewing thousands of bottles over the years. Here, we bring you the stand-out 2013 vintage bottles reviewed in 2014. All of them received a Snooth score greater than 90 points. If you don’t generally believe in the power of point scales, trust in the tasting notes instead.
“Fresh with clear bright violet, bitter almond and earthy plum aromas that gain dark cherry fruit, and a little charry earthy smoky top note with some air. Opening with bright acids, this is fruity and fresh in the mouth with plum skin and black cherry skin flavors that are rather edgy and very freshly fruity. Bracing and mouth cleansing, this is raw and round and seamless in a fairly medium light to light bodied wine. Lovely grape skin tannins and fine acids slice through the palate like a knife through butter. Can’t wait to try this with grilled tuna and grilled pork. The all-purpose Dolcetto.”
