Chionetti Dogliani San Luigi 2018 75cl
Tasting note: Dogliani is a red wine from the village in Piedmont that shares its name (just a few miles south of Barolo) and is made from the Dolcetto grape. A nose of ripe plums and violets with a hint of sage. Big, warm entry, richly textured mid-palate with bags of energy and concentration, excellent grip in the finish, with a return of plummy fruit and a hint of almonds.
Producer: A winery founded in 1912 and run by five generations of the Chionetti family. It is thanks to Quinto, grandson of the founder Giuseppe, that the marketing of the bottles with the name of the family really grew. Andrea then, the son of Quinto, decided to explore the potential of their vineyards and, as a result, they start to produce trhee crus: Sorì Briccolero, San Luigi, Vigna la Costa. Since 2015 the Chionetti family has purchased 3 vineyards in the Barolo area. The grapes are vinified separately, thus giving three distinct Barolo wines.
