The vineayrds of Roussot lies in the hillside that includes Cannubi, so these are very well-situated Dolcetto vines. The 2016 Dolcetto “Roussot” from Paola Rinaldi is a lovely wine, wafting from the glass in a fine blend of sappy black cherries, a bit of road tar, anise, dark soil tones, woodsmoke and a gentle topnote of oregano. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and wide open in personality, with a good core, fine acids and lovely length and grip on the balanced and gently tannic finish. This is high class Dolcetto! 2018-2030.
