"The 2018 Dogliani San Luigi is plump, juicy and full of character. Red cherry jam, wild flowers, spice, game and licorice infuse the 2018 with notable varietal character. Medium in body and persistent, the 2018 has so much to offer. What a delicious wine it is."

Product Description:

"Made from grapes grown in vineyards located in San Luigi, this wine is distinguished by its freshness and drinkability while maintaining the excellent body and elegance of an important red wine. Fruity and aromatic, this is an everyday wine that surprises at every sip.

San Luigi is one of the most important crus of Dogliani area. 2018 Dolcetto shows a good aromatic and balance frame –despite a challening an mid-rainy vintage- which goes through a dominant and intense ruby red color, while at the nose red fruits prevail over the floral side, with strawberry and cherry in the foreground. In the mouth fruits bring back to the olfactive memory, the good acidity typical of the Dolcetto of Dogliani blooms and the finale shows a delicate and rolling tannin. It is preferable to drink it over the first 5 years in consideration of the steel-only refining." - Winery
