This is one delicious little Dolcetto from the talented hands of Steve Crawford.

It's the perfect red to go with a long lunch; deliciously plummy and fleshy, filled with dark cherries and little hints of warming spice. Steve describes this wine as an ode to the phrase "dolce fa niente", which means "the pleasure in doing nothing". An excellent red to pull out on a lazy weekend.

It's wine to sit back and relax with, so stock up, put your feet up and go with the flow.

 

Ashton (Ceravolo vineyard) 400 metres up - loamy, clay with shale and touch of limestone. First time picking this plot for me, trying to remember my feelings on dolcetto whilst in Barolo in 2010…. Im getting on. But ideally lunch friendly and would do alright w a chill.

 

Plums, dark fleshy cherries, hints of spice, chocolate cake n tarish / reductive notes on the nose.

The palate has the classic Dolcetto softness and broader feel across the mouth, which makes its way to feeling like your sucking on a cherry pith - with some tight tannin and soft but fresh acid to close.
