2010 Pietro Rinaldi Dolcetto D' Alba
On the nose I get beautiful aromas of red and black raspberry, violet, mulberry, rose petals, and concord grape. The smell actually reminds me somewhat of many Beaujolais that I've had in the past. It's very fruit driven and fresh!
On the palate the wine is equally as fresh and expressive and shows some really nice mixed berry flavors and hints of soil and mineral. The wine is light and fresh and finishes dry, with a touch of anise. I would probably pair this one with a margarita pizza with some fresh mozzarella. Yum.....87 points
