Pecchenino 2012 Dogliani Superiore, "Siri d'Jermu," Piedmont, Italy
Vinous.com rating: 92..."Pecchenino's flagship Dogliani Superiore Sirì d'Jermu is terrific in 2012. Deep, fleshy and resonant, the 2012 presents a gorgeous expression of Dolcetto that marries textural depth with dark, brooding flavors. At the same time, it is impossible to miss the stylistic change that has taken place here in recent years as the wines have become increasingly finessed and polished. Hints of smoke, violets and tobacco add nuance on the textured finish. The 2012 spent a year in large casks."
