Come and meet our delicious Italian find of the day, this Francesco Rinaldi Roussot Dolcetto D'Alba. Beh ciao là... It's ready to drink now so open your first intense bottle and enjoy it with antipasti of artichokes, salami and olives. That ought to get the ball rolling. This Francesco Rinaldi has amazing, lovely dark fruit, earthy undertones, clean minerality and beautiful balance, making it ideal with prosciutto, salami, meats, simple pastas, vitello tonnato, chicken and lots more. We love its fruit and suggestion of spice with chicken cooked with tomatoes and prunes. If you're in the mood for pasta, look no further. How about agnolotti with sweet peas and goat cheese? And finally, if you're looking for the wow factor, we love this Francesco Rinaldi with roasted rack of pork with morel mushroom pan sauce. Don't burn your tongues on the pan!! Break out at least one more bottle and cap off the evening with a smooth Piedmontese Robiola Rocchetta cheese. It's dense and creamy, and will take instantly to this Italian red. Talk about your dolce vita, winelovers...

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "The 2020 Dolcetto d'Alba Roussot is bright, lifted and super-classy. Readers will find a mid-weight, beautifully perfumed Dolcetto full of character. Bright red berry fruit, licorice and floral notes open effortlessly. This gorgeous Dolcetto from vineyards in the heart of Barolo is a winner. I loved it." - Jan 2022
