"Elio Altare's Dolcetto d'Alba has typically been one of my favorites, so it's nice to see the 2005 perform well. It is plump and full of life, with expressive aromatics, vibrant fruit and an elegant personality. In 2005 Altare was less severe with his yields than in 2004 and the wine's balance clearly benefits from his more measured approach. It will drink at its finest if opened several hours before serving. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2010."
