Wine to try
2006 Prunotto Dolcetto D’Alba, Piedmont (Italy), A$23.95
Tuna knocks most whites sideways. Dolcetto is an unsung variety. It means “little sweet one”, a reference to the berry size rather than flavour. It has intense dark cherry flavours cut by a thrust of acid and, generally, shows no significant oak influence. Good dolcetto is a light to medium-weight red with a wonderful sweet/savoury interplay; it’s a happy companion to light meat or rich seafood dishes. Use a splash of dolcetto to the pot and serve the rest with the dish, lightly chilled if it’s a hot day.
