Poderi Luigi Einaudi Dogliani 2018

Available for:
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.

The 2018 Dogliani is perfumed, deep and super-expressive. Like so many Doglianis in this vintage, the Einaudi is less bombastic than is often the case, and that is not a bad thing. Sweet floral, sage and spice notes complement a core of red and black berry fruit in a mid-weight yet deep Dogliani loaded with character.

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.
