The Dolcetto Coste & Fossati is characterized by a fascinating vibrant purple color, deep and brilliant. The submerge cap technique carried during fermentation exalted the elegant aromas of red and black fruits, sour cherry and fresh thyme. The palate is creamy and textured with a long lovely finish of licorice and menthol. The 2018 vintage is vibrant and definitely not lacking in energy and personality.

The 2018 Dolcetto d'Alba Coste & Fossati is a gorgeous wine. Usually, the Coste & Fossati is a richer, bigger wine; the 2018, on the other hand, offers lovely mid-palate depth, but in a restrained, perfumed style that is hugely appealing. Dark red cherry, red plum, chocolate, licorice and spice all flesh out in this delicious and inviting Dolcetto from the Vajra family. The 2018 marks the second vintage of the return to submerged cap maceration, an approach the Vajra family used up until the late 1980s.

A pure, black cherry- and blackberry-flavored red, this is rich and balanced, with juicy acidity and refined tannins meshing with the texture and ripe fruit. Drink now through 2023. 600 cases made.
