Moon Curser Dolcetto

Moon Curser Dolcetto 2018

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMoody purple colour with a crimson rim and plum core. The aromas are pretty, spicy and quite dolcetto-like, with plum, and dark cherry, with a true warmth to the fruit and a fragrant note of oak. The flavours are bright and tangy with dark cherry, plum, subtle licorice and sticky herbs. Quite juicy as you expect dolcetto to be, but also spicy, ripe and generously fruited. Acids are vivid and the tasty finish shows red fruit compote. Tannins are nicely ripe and more substantial than Italian versions. Vinous and full of sweet fruit flavours with a juicy, dusty finish. A complete outlier in the Okanagan, dolcetto is a juicy grape from Piedmont in north western Italy. Moon Curser uses no oak here for pure grape expression, albeit with a south Okanagan ripeness rather than alpine restraint. Something Italian like pizza or a meaty calzone will step up nicely.Tasted: 06 November 2019Tasted by: DJ KearneyPrices: BC 24.99 winery direct, select private wine shops, restaurants Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
