This is perfectly pleasant drinking, if a little simple. A deep intensity ruby in colour, Pio Cesara’s 2011 Dolcetto d’Alba has aromatics reminding of cherry, cola, spice, redcurrant, smoke and tobacco. The palate is a little flat, with short length, light tannins and medium bodied flavours suggestive of redcurrant and tobacco. Overall, the wine achieves a certain balance and drinkability in the glass, but doesn’t have a great deal of complexity or length. Pleasant enough. Acceptable
