I am a Dolcetto fan and yet this is a grape which so often disappoint with weedy fruit and pongy aromatics. Borgogno’s early-drinking 2018 is as far removed from this dodgy style as you can get. It is bursting with character, like a virile young Beaujolais, and it also has a thrilling fruits of the forest perfume which I admire greatly. Slim and nimble on the palate it is a red to set the scene before you move onto something more structured and as a palate warm-up act it is sublime!
