Gianni Doglia represents the third generation of his family to organically farm 10 hectare in Asti. His grandfather was a sharecropper in the ‘40s and purchasing the drop-dead beautiful Doglia estate represented a life long dream of making wine from grapes he grew on land he owned.
The Doglia vines of Barbera, Moscato, Nebbiolo and Grignolino are rooted in the white calcareous clay at the highest elevations in Asti. Gianni always hand-harvests his grapes. The Grignolino spends very short time on the skins and then is pressed without them, leaving a beautiful violet color.
The 2019 Grignolino has a killer nose of wild strawberries, savory spice and lilac. Don’t let the color fool you, it’s deeply concentrated, loaded with fresh red fruits and finishes long and dry with firm tannins. Pair with prosciutto, burrata, simple pastas and pizza.
