Langhe Nebbiolo DOC

Few wineries are as intertwined with the history of Italy as Poderi Einaudi, which was founded by the first president of the Italian Republic – one of the most highly respected in the history of the republic – to be democratically elected by his peers (in 1948).
But in 1897, he had already begun making wine, having bought his very first farmstead in San Giacomo, Dogliani. The properties have grown exponentially since then and include estates in the most sought-after areas of the region, reaching 160 hectares (395 acres), with over 60 hectares (148 acres) under vine. The cellar itself has been totally renovated and expanded. Most of it is underground and temperature/humidity-controlled, which provides ideal conditions for the wines.
Today Einaudi is owned and run by great-grandson Matteo Sardagna, who works with enologist Beppe Ca Viola, Zvonimir Jurkovic, cellar master and vineyard manager, and Roberto Mozzone, logistics manager.
Matteo and his team make elegant wines with a strong identity that honor their legacy and Matteo’s commitment to the land, values and traditions of his family and the Langhe area.

From the youngest Nebbiolo vineyards, located in Neive. The first very first Nebbiolo vineyards Luigi Einaudi bought. The vineyards are located on the hills that run from Dogliani towards Barbaresco and feature calcareous marl soil and south and southeastern exposure. Vinified in stainless steel the wine is drawn off after four to five days. It ages twelve months in stainless steel and two months in bottle. An elegant fruit-forward and flavorful Nebbiolo with a full body, wonderful even young.
