    This starts with huge aromas of raspberry syrup that will fool you into thinking the wine is sweet. The body is round and filled with sweet black cherries and ripe dark plums and a note of bitter chocolate, This easy to like and food friendly deep purple wine finishes fruity and dry. A super delicious bargain that doesn't take itself too seriously.

    I have liked all of the wines that I have tasted from Fratelli Barale. The 2017 Dolcetto is no exception. It is bright and lively with a deep dark color. Nice fresh and juicy fruit flavors are balanced out with a clean crisp finish. Ready to drink now, it will go well with pizza or hearty foods.

    Pretty is the first word that came to mind upon nosing this Dolcetto D' Alba. It greets you with aromas of black cherry, violets, and almonds. The racy acidity along with the softer tannins combine to make this a super food-friendly wine. This would be a perfect accompaniment to salumi, braised meats or antipasti. Tremendous value.
    Top Value!

    This biodynamic gem of a Dolcetto is an awesome wine at a crazy low price.With surprisingly apparent acidity from a grape not really known for it, "Le Rose" has a great rosewater nose and a mouthful of dark plum wrapped velvety body. The pleasing chocolate note at the end of the palette is a nice finish and helps make this a fantastic pairing for meat sauces or homemade hamburgers.

    Because 2017 was such a warm year in Piemonte, we expected this wine to be a bit riper and higher in alcohol than usual yet Barale was able to deliver another exceptional Dolcetto at 13.5% with unexpected weight and concentration. It's rich and round with a touch of tannins and loads of fruit on the finish. This impressive dry red is a huge hit with customers and staff alike. Great for everyday evening fare.
