Poderi Luigi Einaudi Dogliani 2013
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Dolcetto di Dogliani|
|Brand||Poderi Luigi Einaudi|
This medium-bodied, easygoing red offers aromas of blue flowers, dark berry, underbrush and a whiff of cake spice. The palate delivers blackberry, red currant, ground pepper and a note of star anise alongside firm, refined tannins. An almond note backs up the finish.
This has heft for the vintage, with ample muscle and structure providing support for blackberry and blueberry fruit. Still a bit tight on the finish, but should open over the near term. Drink now through 2018. 12,500 cases made.
