It all began in 1897, when 23-year-old Luigi Einaudi purchased the first of the Einaudi estates at San Giacomo, near Dogliani, in the heart of Dolcetto country. It is said that he never missed a harvest, even during the long years spent in Rome, as governor of the Banca d’Italia, Minister and President. Today, Luigi’s great-grandson Matteo Sardagna is in charge of the state.
Poderi Luigi Einaudi owns 11 properties in Dogliani and Barolo. Einaudi’s core release is the Dogliani DOCG Dolcetto, aged in stainless steel tanks. Einaudi also makes a premium Dolcetto wine, Vigna Tecc, which is a Dogliani Superiore from selected vineyard parcels that spends a year aging in oak.
The Barolo lineup includes wines from the Cannubi and Terlo vineyards, as well as a standard Barolo and a Barolo Chinato. The portfolio also includes Barbera Piemonte, Langhe Nebbiolo and Langhe Bianco Chardonnay, a Moscato d’Asti, and a Dolcetto grappa.
Join us for an evening with Matteo Sardagna owner of Poderi Luigi Einaudi and taste some of his great wines.
