Munfrina Dolcetto d'Alba DOC 2012
AVAILABLE IN 750ML BOTTLES
It has clear, bright, purple red with clear tannic nuances around the edge. The olfactory sensations are persistent, fragrant and wide open exalting the fruit of the wine. It is also rounded by an evident perception of strawberry and raspberry which is typical of this wine.
It has good gustative persistence with the classic light tannin astringency of Nebbiolo. It is very well rounded by the wood aromas and other flavour components such as minerals. It has a lovely finish which is persistent and stimulating.
