2005 Grimaldi Dolcetto D'alba
"Grimaldi's deeply-flavored 2005 Dolcetto d'Alba (from a plot near the Monforte/Dogliani border) is a terrific example of old-vine Dolcetto. It is a big, structured wine, with a well-defined core of fruit, great length and an authoritative personality. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012. This is a superb set of new releases from Ferruccio Grimaldi, a young producer based in Barolo who continues to show improvement and maturity in his wines."
