90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2003

($40) Full medium ruby. Currant, chocolate and roasted oak on the nose, along with a faint medicinal quality. Sweet and suave, with perfectly integrated acids framing and extending the dark berry and chocolate flavors, and leavening the wine's density. Finishes with big, ripe, tongue-dusting tannins and excellent length. Wonderfully concentrated and extremely well-balanced dolcetto. Pecchenino was among the first to age dolcetto in barriques.

Tried one bottle that was obviously defective. It seems as though the stuff taken out of the rest of the wine during the fining process ended up in my bottle. There was lots and lots of sediment that caked the inside of the neck and on base of cork. Also, quite of bit of this stuff seems to be dissolved in the wine, giving it a really unpleasant chalky quality. I can tell this used the be good wine--the flavors and aromas are still intact, but its almost impossible to drink due to the pervasive chalkiness. You have to question the quality of a winery that would sell such an obviously defective bottle. Careless winemaking and bottling here. Bought from Canal's Wine in Marlton. No reputable retailer should purchase or sell such obviously defective wine.

With Barbera, Dolcetto is one of the two "everyday" wines of the Piedmont region in Italy. While the most favorable growing sites here are reserved for Barolo and Barbaresco, winemakers plant Dolcetto widely where the temperamental Nebbiolo grape doesn't thrive. As Dolcetto is not made to age, but rather intended for more immediate consumption...
