Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogne 2017 – Dolcetto d’Alba

The nose is fruity, slightly tight and offers concentration (full of finesse). It reveals notes if wild black plum, wild black berries and small notes of wild red berries, laurel, cornflower associated with touches of spices as well as hints of Cuben pepper and a very discreet hint of tobacco. The palate is juicy, mineral, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a small freshness, a very discreet richness as well as a beautiful acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy plum, juicy blackberry and small notes of crunchy wild strawberry associated with fine touches of crunchy red berries, flowers as well as hints of laurel, racy minerality, discreet hints of tobacco and a very discreet hint of dried almond. Good length. Beautiful acidulous sensation on the finish. There is an imperceptible hint of hazelnut on the aftertaste.
