Einaudi Langhe “Luigi Einaudi” DOC
30% Cabernet, 30% Nebbiolo, 20% Merlot, and 20% Barbera. Einaudi Langhe “Luigi Einaudi” DOC is an intense garnet color, with pleasing aromas of cooked plums and blackberries, and an underlying hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with a rich tannic structure, soft with an intense fruity taste and balanced, elegant, spiced final note.
“Only with the care and passion that Einaudi takes in the vineyards, can we grow grapes that are healthy and of high quality which, in turn, are used to produce high-quality wines that will cellar well.”
