Flavio Roddolo has become one of our most treasured sources of no-frills bottles from Piedmont. Roddoloandnbsp;works his six hectares of vines in the hills outside Monforte with an immense amount of skill and devotion. His wines are stirring, soulful and singular, the product of a master in harmony with his surroundings. This is old-school Dolcetto at its finest - juicy and friendly, yes, but itand#39;s also much more on the savory side than youand#39;ll encounter from most versions of the grape. Roddoloandnbsp;releases his Dolcettoandnbsp;around the same time that most producers are releasing their Barolo of the same vintage, which speaks volumes to the seriousness of the wine.andnbsp;andnbsp;
