In nearly every single vintage, both of their entry level wines sell out on presell because people know how damn good the quality in the bottle is; it is pretty much impossible to ask for more from an every day house red. I say it every year, like a broken record, that they Altares put the same attention to detail and quality in their entry level wines as their top cru Barolo wines, a sign of an admirable work ethic that is integral at great wine estates the world over. The Dolcetto is always a bit darker and chewier than the Barbera. If you know it, you love it. Get what you can while the gettin’ is good.
