Dogliani DOCG

The heart of Dolcetto

Dogliani DOCG

Dolcetto is a wine that has long been associated with the little town of Dogliani. One of the wine’s local promoters was a past President of the Italian Republic, Luigi Einaudi, who was born in the area and owned Dolcetto vineyards there.

Local producers’ dedication to quality was recognised in 2005 with the application of the Docg appellation to Dogliani Dolcetto, which can also be known simply as ‘Dogliani’.

La zona di produzione del Dogliani Docg si trova nel sud del Piemonte, nella parte bassa delle Langhe I comuni che compongono il Dogliani zona sono tradizionali villaggi rurali: alcuni, come Dogliani, Farigliano e Clavesana si trovano lungo i fiumi che dividono le pianure dalle colline, e sono state fondate in epoca romana o pre-romana, mentre gli altri, Bastia , Belvedere Langhe, Cigliè, Monchiero, Rocca Cigliè, Roddino, Somano, sono stati tutti costruiti in epoca medievale in alto sulle colline per difendersi contro le invasioni saracene.

Dogliani is intensely ruby red in colour and possesses violet highlights. The perfume has strong notes of fresh fruit and flowers with blackberry and wild cherry to the fore. The flavour is dry and harmonious with a fine and bitterish after -taste including almonds. Modest acidity lends the wine a lively note

In 2018, 76 Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive (‘crus’) have been officially recognized.
