About This Wine

The grapes for this wine come from the vineyards in the hills of San Luigi, San Giacomo and Madonna delle Grazie around Dogliani.

Quite classically styled, the wine has a heady dark floral perfume, with rich fruit notes. Medium to full bodied, this wine is textbook Dolcetto; dark fruits, a silky mouth-feel, and great acid/tannin balance.

It’s a laid-back wine, supple and soft with lots of flavour, all in harmony. There is a simplicity here that makes it utterly enticing.

About Poderi Luigi Einaudi

Founder Luigi Einaudi is credited with bringing modern viticulture to Langhe, when in 1915 he was the first to graft vines onto American rootstock to combat phylloxera.

Now run by his great-grandson Matteo Sardagna Einaudi, Poderi Luigi Einaudi, has passed through family generations, respecting tradition, while still keeping an eye on the future.

In partnership with other growers in the region, they were at the forefront of the creation of the DOCG indication for Dogliani in 2006.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Classic styling here. Cherry, red fruits, a bit of earth, spice and floral perfume. Medium-bodied, fresh, a bright ‘mineral’ feel with a light but earthy grip to tannin, and a clean finish of fine length. Such a lovely drink." Gary Walsh (Wine Front)

The Real Review

"Deepish red/purple colour, with a nutty, toasty, savoury note leading the aromas, background raspberry and blackberry beneath. The wine opens with crisp acidity and rich but straightforward blueberry and mulberry flavours; a medium-bodied wine at most, with a firm backing of tannin that will enable it to stand up to flavoursome food. A superior sort of dolcetto, for sure, with some structure." Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
