The Dolcetto Coste & Fossati is characterized by a fascinating vibrant purple color, deep and brilliant. A symphony of red and black fruits, sour cherry, with a long lovely finish of licorice and menthol. The 2017 vintage is lively, with complex and silky tannins and an amazing texture.

I had tasted this as an unfinished wine last year but hadn't assigned an official score until now. The 2017 Dolcetto d'Alba Coste & Fossati pours from the bottle with an inky dark appearance, but the bouquet is rather tame and contained considering the full-throttle personality of Dolcetto. (This should be especially true in a hot vintage such as 2017.) Dark cherry and blackberry notes unfold to give the wine a lasting sensation of thickness and darkness.

This is saturated with blackberry, black cherry and chocolate flavors, allied to a plush profile and backed by a dense structure. The fruit-filled aftertaste lingers. Best from 2020 through 2025. 580 cases made.
