Marchesi di Barolo 1996 "Madonna di Como" Dolcetto d'Alba ($8.99)
Dark ruby color. Spicy red fruit and caramel aromas. Juicy, simple fruit flavor and lemony acidity, fresh and lasting. It's not quite up to the quality of the delicious Villadoria 1995 Dolcetto d'Alba that we enjoyed in a restaurant in North Palm Beach, and it shows an odd whiff of oak for a Dolcetto, but it's still an accessible and quaffable table wine.
FOOD MATCH: Fine with pasta in a fresh tomato sauce with sausages, green peppers and onions.
