Notes from the Winemaker:
A traditional wine, easy to drink, which comes from a blend of Dolcetto grapes from the vineyards of the Einaudi estates which surround Dogliani.
In particolar in the vineyards positioned in the hills of San Luigi, San Giacomo and Madonna delle Grazie. In the Dogliani area this traditional wine reaches its maximal tipicity: of a ruby red colour, which tends toward violet with a rich fruity bouquet, full bodied with an intense aroma of undergrowth and a pleasantly tannic taste, with a slight final almond note, typical of this wine.
Eight months of maturation in steel tanks and two months in glass complete the refinement. Of a dry and moderately acidic taste, after a year of ageing, it has a good body and full taste.
The annual production is of 150.000 bottles.

The wine making:
Fermented in steel tanks under strict temperature control (28°C), racked after 4/5 days, decanted, gotten malolactic treatment and completed at a controlled temperature. Decanted a number of times during maturation in steel tanks, bottled in high spring and made ready for drinking at the beginning of summer.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - James Suckling:
"Just what you expect from this category at first, offering plenty of vibrant red cherries and raspberries. Then comes quite a well-executed core of fresh fruit and firm tannins. Medium-bodied and fruity on the finish. Drink now." - (14 Aug, 2019)

88 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"During my visit to the winery, the 2018 Dogliani was described as a "delicate baby." The tannin management for the Dolcetto can be tricky. And while there has always been a careful selection process during harvest for the fruit ultimately used in the Dogliani, this year they decided to do less fruit thinning. The end product shows good acidity, a wine that is crunchy and elegant and not very heavy in the mouth. It it will flesh out with time. Production stands at 150,000 bottles." - Monica Larner (28th Jun 2019)
