  • Score: 90 Vintage 2019 Wine Spectator Bright and juicy, this red matches cherry, boysenberry and strawberry fruit with lively acidity. A mineral element and light dusting of tannins linger on the finish. Drink now. 7,500 cases made, 4,800 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2019 Wine and Spirits Flavors of dark cherry and raspberry meld with notes of subtle spice and toasted almonds in this easy-drinking dolcetto. It’s lively, inviting another sip. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media The 2018 Dogliani San Luigi is fresh, fruity and full of near-term appeal. Dark blue and purplish berry fruit, lavender, spice and mint all race out of the glass. The 2018 has a touch of reduction that is typical of Dolcetto. Otherwise, it is very nicely done in a fresh, mid-weight style for the year. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media Pecchenino's 2017 Dogliani San Luigi is rich, radiant and incredibly inviting. Super-ripe, inky fruit, menthol, lavender and sweet spice add tremendous immediacy. The 2017 turns increasingly delicate with time in the glass as it shows off its more nuanced side. This is very nicely done. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
