About this wine:
A high quality wine which improves over the years, of intense garnet red colour, with a pleasing aroma of cooked plums and blackberries, with an underlying hint of vanilla. It has a full body, a rich tannic structure, soft with an intense fruity taste and a balanced, elegant, spiced final note. The fact that it comes from Cabernet, Nebbiolo, Merlot and Barbera grapes, cultivated by the Einaudi estates in Barolo and Dogliani, influences the distinct Piedmontese character of this wine.
The annual production is of 4.500 bottles.

Winemaking:
Fermented in steel and concrete tanks with a controlled temperature (30°C), racked after 8-10 days, decanted, gotten malolactic treatment and completed maintening the controlled temperature. It matures for several months in barriques and big barrels and then refines in glass.

The Vineyards:
Zone: Village of Dogliani, Barolo and Neive (Cuneo)
Soil: marly- calcareous-clayey ground
Exposure: South/South-West

Ratings & Reviews



92 Points - Vinous:
"The 2016 Langhe Luigi Einaudi is the estate's blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Barbera and Merlot. Plum, chocolate, leather and sweet spice are nicely pushed forward. All the elements come together effortlessly in a racy, sumptuous Piedmont red that will drink well right out of the gate. Wines like this, very much in vogue in the 1990s, are completely out of favor today. This is about as good as it gets in the genre. . " - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2020)
