Sottimano 1996 Cottà Dolcetto d'Alba ($11.99)
Very dark reddish-purple. Berrylike aroma with floral hints of violets. Soft at first, intense fruit almost seems sweet (hence "Dolcetto"?), but dries out on the palate and finishes long and smooth, with mixed-berry and floral notes that echo the nose. Excellent wine! U.S. importer: Vintner Select, Cincinnati; a Marc de Grazia Selection. (July 9, 1998)
FOOD MATCH: Good match with strip steaks braised in a light tomato and wine sauce.
Mauro Veglio 1995 Dolcetto d'Alba ($11.99)
FOOD MATCH: Fine with ham steaks pan-grilled with a slice of sharp Cheddar. I find Dolcetto usually a good match with ham.
