2007 Pelissero DOLCETTO D'ALBA "Munifrina" (Piemonte, Italy)

Too lean and clean for me, especially at this price point.
Vibrant, dark ruby with purple highlights. Tart-ish nose of plummy-berry fruit with a sweet cream component. Medium-bodied and relatively lean for a Dolcetto (I like them fleshy), but with good focus and decent depth. A bit of tannin in the medium-long finish. 85. Was $22 and change at Spec's on Smith.
