Luigi Einaudi was highly qualified as a politician, bursar and economist, but despite his honour he wouldn’t forget his humble manners. The “Professor”, as he became affectionately known in Dogliani, never neglected his vineyards, notwithstanding his numerous professional obligations, which eventually led to the demanding responsibility of President of the first Republic of Italy (1948).
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.
A rich fruity nose with obvious perfumes of red berried fruits, the pleasing tannins are finished off with a hint of almonds on the finish.
Dolcetto, translating to 'the little sweet one' (sweet as in character, it's not a sweet wine) is a great pasta wine and will match well with most 'every day' food!
