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 2020 version of the Grignolino is the product of 50+ year old vines, vinfied without oak to preserve its incredible fruit. Light in color to the core, bright and wonderfully aromatic, this is food-friendly red wine that can double just as well all on its own. Great choice for a house red to enjoy all summer long.
