The Anfosso family, owners of De Forville, have quietly built this winery into not only one of the top quality destinations in Piedmont, but also one of the region's best places to find outsized values. Perhaps having Angelo Gaja as a neighbor for so many years has inculcated a "we try harder" attitude; it's hard to say. We do know that their American importer has asked them to raise their prices several times over the years, only to be met with a firm rejection every time. Whatever the case, in the hands of the Anfossos, Dolcetto becomes a dark, rich, concentrated, almost brooding affair, with typical bitter almond and roast plum notes offsetting a structure which seems almost monumental for such a humble grape variety.
