90 points Decanter
"Black cherry fruit, smooth and round with refined tannins. Textured mouthfeel with a crunchy finish."

90 points Vinous
"The 2022 Dolcetto d'Alba is a beautifully fragrant wine. Crushed flowers, mint and red/purplish fruit all grace this understated, classy Dolcetto. The 2022 is bit light in body, as almost all wines are in this year, but balance and harmony are very much present."

Jancis Robinson
"The variety ripens earlier than Nebbiolo but is very weather-sensitive. Cold nights can ruin stems and prejudice ripening. Massolino actively manages Dolcetto’s tannins. They bought equipment that removed seeds early on. Franco’s grandpa always had a glass of Dolcetto with meals. Older people remember Dolcetto as being the wine of the Langhe. In the old days, Massolino made more Dolcetto than Nebbiolo. Franco thinks his 2023 Dolcetto will be better still. But the market is crazy to demand such young Dolcetto.
Pale purplish crimson. Very bright, pure fruit. Intense redcurrant. Quite a bit of tannin. 16.5/20 points."

Vinous Reverie Notes
The soils of Serralunga convey exceptional structure to this grape, which offers characteristic freshness and fragrance. Tasting Notes: Bright ruby red with deep purplish hues. Fresh, fruity, sweet and elegant perfumes strongly prevail. Expansive and warm entry, opening into a multitude of flavors traceable to a rich and concentrated wine. Naturally dominant fruit and vinous character leaving behind a lingering and pleasant aftertaste. Food Pairing: In keeping with Langa tradition this wine is ideal with all courses of a meal. It is also perfect for snacks featuring cured meats and cheeses, or at the beginning of a meal, served with starters (other than fish) and sliced meats. Pasta, rice, soup and red meats, particularly when grilled, enhance its good body and pleasantly drinkable quality.
