Stag's Hollow Dolcetto 2018
A vibrant and unapologetic wine. Electric purple in colour, with a nose that tiptoes between vibrant fruit and earthy notes. Bright flavours of sour cherries, Italian prune plums, blueberry pie and bramble mingle with more masculine notes of earth, dried violets, spice, dark chocolate and savoury botanicals. This profile carries through to the palate, where the earthiness of the wine is enhanced by soft, chalky tannins, and complimented by its youthful, juicy acidity.
Classic: pizza, charcuterie, mushroom & sausage pasta, spaghetti & meatballs, tomato-based zucchini “zoodle” dishes, game, duck, lamb, roasted root vegetables. Adventurous: paella, cheese-based pastas, beef & pork empanadas, burgers, jambalaya.
