Matthew Jukes is cock-a-hoop over Matteo Ascheri's latest vintage of Dolcetto Vigna Nirane in his weekly column in Money Week.
"Unoaked, cool-fermented (this method retains fruit and lowers tannins) and bottled in early April – you couldn't get a fresher and more vital red if you tried. The man (in reality he is more of a bear) behind this wine is the great Matteo Ascheri and his dolcetto is one of the most exciting on the market.
"There is black cherry, blackberry and brooding plum throughout this wine's long, lithe flavour and yet at no stage does it taste too astringent or raw. This is a sonorously fruity wine with a lust for life as frankly terrifying as the great Iggy Pop, and you'll know it is the greatest barbecue wine of the year the second that you lower your hooter into the glass.
