Enzo Boglietti Dolcetto D'Alba

2004 Enzo Boglietti Dolcetto D'Alba ($17) -- La Morra, Italy. Upon first opening I thought the wine was tight and somewhat acidic,but after 30 minutes the flavors softened up and I enjoyed this wine with dinner (a simple roast with onions, celery and potatoes). I would recommend that you decant this wine for 30 minutes before enjoying. The local distributor mentioned that the 2004 was better than the 2003, and was recently applauded in a "Wall Street Journal" weekly reviews of Dolcetto's which declared the Enzo to be the best wine and best value. I would link there but chances are you can't get in without a paid registration.

"thewinedoctor.com" and "Di'WineTaste" both have good reviews of this producer but did not taste this particular wine. The label shot is from a different vintage but is identical to the 2004.

I'm holding a Dolcetto by Domenico Clerico 2004. I was wondering if it would be too young to drink.
