Dolcetto d'Alba De Forville 2006 Piedmont Italy

Italian wine • Sat at the bar at Market Table in the village on Carmine street and Bedford. This Dolcetto d'Alba, has aromas of cherries & sour fruit, medium weight with dark ruby color. It has a palate of chocolate, spices, herbs and medium tannins, with a bitter finish. It wasn't one of my favorites, a little too tight and on the sour side. Wine was paired with an Italian cows milk cheese called Taleggio with dried figs in balsamic vinegar. A sharper aged cheese might have worked better.
