    Glossary

Winery Notes:  The wine has complex aromas of dark cherry, cloves and pepper. In the mouth, it is well structured and harmonious with excellent tannins, a lush body with seductive red fruit flavors and a lengthy, pleasantly tangy finish.

This complex, well-structured and harmonious Dolcetto has received the Tre Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso award over six consecutive years. “It’s awfully hard not to admire Marziano Abbona’s Dogliani Papà Celso.” – Wine Advocate “Pressenda”

The 2008 Dogliani Papa Celso comes across as dark, brooding and powerful, all qualities that are typical of Dolcetto from Dogliani. The Papa Celso is a bit taut in this vintage, but it nevertheless delivers tons of quality for the money. Blackberries, violets, tar and smoke sit on a mineral-infused frame of notable length. This is a fabulous effort from Abbona. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.

Bursting with blackberry and wild berry flavors, this red is refreshing and balanced. The light tannins and bitter almond component accent the finish. Drink now. 350 cases imported. –BS

Lush concentration and deep aromas of dark fruit and black cherry make an excellent first impression. This Dolcetto shows a dark, deep color and a chewy, almost inky texture. — M.L. (9/1/2010)
