This easily drunk wine comes from a mixture of dolcetto grapes grown in vineyards owned by Einaudi, a rural company. The vineyards encircle Dogliani, encompassing the areas Madonna delle Grazie, San Luigi, Santa Lucia. The wine is deep red -almost purple - and has a rich, fruity aroma. It is well-bodied with a strong woody taste, pleasant tannins and a slightly bitterish finish. Its dry taste is moderately acidic, with 13° alcoholic content. After it has been aged for a year it is very well-bodied with a characteristically long, bitterish finish. It is fermented in steel containers under a controlled temperature of 27/32°C. It is drawn after 4/5 days, malolactic fermentation induced and the process completed under controlled temperatures.

The producer

Poderi Luigi Einaudi is the oldest wine-making company in Dogliani. In 1897 Luigi Einaudi bought the San Giacomo estate in the Dogliani area. He was 23. The property, which included an old chapel and a ruined eighteenth century edifice, measured 40 "giornate piemontesi", which is about 15 hectares of land. It was bought for 32,351 lira, most of which was borrowed. The last land purchase took place when, at the age of 84, Einaudi bought 6 "giornate piemontesi" in Barolo. Ninety-eight of the one hundred and eight hectares of land owned by the company, are spread across the hills of San Luigi, Gombe and Santa Lucia in Dogliani. The other eight are in Barolo on hills of Connubi and Terlo Vie Nuove. Just over thirty hectares - the best land - is given over to vineyards. The rest is made up of cedar forests, mixed forests, hazelnut trees, and meadowland. The vineyards are entrusted to the care of employees who live in nine rural houses scattered around the property. The members of every household are responsible for tending their plot of land - a truly rural company. A new wine cellar has recently been built at one of these households. In order to assure a constant temperature and the correct level of humidity, it is completely underground. The wine is fermented in steel containers under carefully controlled temperatures. It is matured in small and medium-sized oak casks.
