Paitin Docletto D’Alba, “Sori Paitin”2003 wine review by (PB)

This wine is a pretty cranberry red with fresh fruit bouquet of tart berries and green tones.

In the mouth there is some toast and stern tannins with tight flavors. Definitely old world style and needs some time to open up.

With 15 minutes of breathing the nose yields earthy tones that are wild and rustic. There’s a layer underneath of something I can’t put my finger (or tongue) one. More breathing…

A fabulous layer of cinnamon emerges—wow! This is opening nicely; an old world classic; dried fruit through and through. I bought this on a trip to Boston with (NW) and this was recommended by one of the shop’s knowledgeable staff. Raise a glass.
