Dolcetto d'Alba, Bric del Salto, Sottimano, 2004

I must have had this wine a dozen or more times by now and I never tire of it. Perfectly ready to drink, its lean balance of fresh fruit and tart bitterness makes it among the most food friendly wines you’ll run into. Probably about ready to disappear from the market, but no problem as the 2005 is lovely too.
