Tasting Notes and Scores

The 2010 Dolcetto d’Alba Coste & Fossati is quite firm in this vintage. It possesses plenty of fruit and intensity, but it is a serious Dolcetto with tons of underlying structure that needs time to resolve itself. The energetic, wiry finish is super elegant. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.

This is another superb set of wines from Aldo and Milena Vajra. What else is new? I am sure one day the Vajras will receive the broader recognition they so richly deserve. In the meantime, savvy readers know the exceptional quality these wines deliver for what remain very modest prices. (Antonio Galloni)

A dark, brooding Dolcetto, laced with tannins and black cherry and plum flavors. It's an ambitious red, turning this juicy quaffing varietal into a more serious style. Though it's well made, I prefer the former profile. Best from 2013 through 2016. 560 cases made.
