Review by Chuck Hill: "Abacela Dolcetto is a perennial favorite with my tasters. This variety from Italy’s Piedmont region has found a perfect home in the Abacela estate Fault Line Vineyard southwest of Roseburg, Oregon. At first the nose is shy, but the bright flavors of ripe cherry and raspberry kick start the olfactory to reveal red and black fruits with earthy mineral, toasty cedar and baking spices."
