Destefanis Dolcetto d'Alba Vigna Monia Bassa 2007
"Full red-ruby. Sexy, complex, soil-driven aromas of dark berries, minerals, dark chocolate, smoked meat and tobacco. Rich and tactile in the mouth, with a subtle sweetness and noteworthy lift to the intriguing currant, smoke and meat flavors.
A substantial, soil-driven wine that finishes broad and dry, with considerable dusty tannins and plenty of energy. No rush to drink this." 90 Points International Wine CellarMore punch and muscle. "Vigna Monia Bassa" represents a selection of older, lower yielding vines that are the best exposed of winemaker Marco Destefanis' vineyards. Concentrated and complex, with suggestions of huckleberries, licorice and vanilla on the palate.
