BRAND NEW KILLER "FIND" HIGHEST SCORING DOLCETTO IN RECENT MEMORY MAYBE EVER!!

"Deep, unctuous and enveloping, the 2016 Dogliani Briccolero is another knockout wine from Chionetti. The 2016 is sumptuous and creamy, with tremendous intensity and plenty of supporting tannin. Even so, the 2016 exudes balance and class, not to mention tremendous personality. There is so much to like here." (VM)

"I love the intense elderberry nose, but the dry tannins are a bit dominant. It pulls the breaks on drinking pleasure. Maybe more harmonious from 2020? " (JS)
