Dogliani, Luigi Einaudi 2021
Red Wine from Italy - NW Italy (Piedmont)
Our tasters loved the generosity of fruit and the depth of flavour of this Italian dolcetto, which is packed with wild-strawberry and red-cherry notes. So much so that they voted it a 2022 Wine Champion. Freddy Bulmer praised its elegance and succulent palate. The ideal pizza wine.

Einaudi (prounce Ei, like ‘say’) is based in Dogliani, the hometown of Luigi Einaudi, Italy's first democratically elected president, who produced wine from the age of 23 with 12 hectares in here in 1897. His grandson, Matteo Sardagna, the current owner now has 52 hectares of vines, with 8 hectares in Barolo, 2 ha in Monforte and 5 ha in Neive, all of nebbiolo. The rest is in Dogliani and Farigliano. Since 1993 all the wine is made in the handsome cellars. The family house is now a bed and breakfast. The composer Lodovico Einaudi is Matteo's cousin.

Long and generous while the tannic bite adds contrast and interest. 16/20
