Luciano Sandrone Dolcetto d'Alba 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark ruby red. The nose offers a floral and fruit bouquet of red plums, hibiscus and frutti di bosco, with mineral notes. In the mouth, raspberries and plums dominate the well- structured ripe tannins and acid. Pepper and anise notes in the midpalate, and the freshness and fruit balance the tannins to the end.

Tank sample of final blend A little redux, cleans up with some air showing  nice bitter cherry and herb fruit. A bit spicy in the mouth this seems a bit brighter and leaner than the 2011 with nice cherry skin fruit. Ultimately it should turn out to be a bit simpler but with softer tannins and the similar lowish acid, but in a fresher, more precise and fruit driven style.  I prefer this to the eleven. 88pts
