Wine Description:
Marziano Abbona San Luigi is a delightful red wine that hails from the Dogliani appellation in Italy. Crafted by a renowned family-owned winery, this wine showcases the expertise and passion of its producers. Historically, cooler vineyards were destined for the production of this wine, as the early-ripening Dolcetto grape benefits from an extended ripening period. The winemaking process involves careful selection and crushing of the grapes, followed by a gentle fermentation and aging in stainless steel tanks. The end result is a wine with a vibrant and fruit-forward character, boasting flavors of ripe berries, hints of black pepper, and a smooth, silky texture.

This Seghesio Dolcetto d'Alba comes from Monforte d’Alba, Piedmont located in Northwest Italy. The vineyards are planted at high elevation which helps offset the warm summers and slows ripening meaning that Dolcetto retains its freshness. The grapes are crushed and the wine is transferred to temperature-controlled fermenters to control the level of extraction and speed of fermentation. Maturation occurs in stainless steel for 10 months with the aim of allowing the bright fruit flavors to shine without being masked by oak flavors.
