About This Wine:

Abbona's Dolcetto is a multi-year Tre Bicchieri award winner from Gambero Rosso (Italy's highest honor). Complex nose of blackberry, minerals, red flowers and fennel seed with the slightest hint of oak. The palate is elegant but powerful with a satiny texture and wonderfully sweet plum and spice fruit. Distinctive Dogliani Dolcetto!

Dogliani is the only DOCG Dolcetto among the other 7 ones. Dolcetto originated in the little commune of Dogliani and it is considered to be the deepest, more complex and elegant of the other dolcettos.


Ratings & Reviews

3 Glasses - Gambero Rosso's Vini d'Italia (highest score for an Italian wine)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Its awfully hard not to admire Marziano Abbona’s 2007 Dogliani Papa Celso. This floral, spiced Dogliani (Dolcetto) offers notable finesse in its aromas and flavors. The Papa Celso has often been a big full-bodied offering, but in 2007 there is a touch more refinement and elegance, and the wine’s mineral elements play a larger role in the wine’s balance. This harmonious, caressing Dogliani is best enjoyed over the next few years, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it drank well beyond my drinking window. . Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012." -Antonio Galloni (10/2008)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This has lots of juicy fruit, with berry, violet and blackberry character. Medium-bodied, with fresh acidity and a clean finish. Best from 2009 through 2012. 3,000 cases made."
