Wine tasting note: 1996 Oberto Dolcetto San Francesco

1996 Oberto Dolcetto San Francesco

9th Apr 1998 GBP7 Piedmont Table Red

[Tasted Blind]
Young, ruby/red to pink at rim.
Open, attractive nose - minty and herbaceous with hints of plums.
Very young with juicy, spicy fruit, slightly green with traces of smoky, old oak.
Still quite tight - could do with some time. [Cool climate Cabernet Franc?]
This would be lovely lightly-chilled with ham.
