Langhe DOC Rosso Diavolisanti 2012

This wine is a blend of Merlot and Dolcetto. The Merlot is aged in barrique whilst the Dolcetto ages in large wooden barrels. The wine is then bottled where it remains for six months to improve its bouquet and characteristics.

Diavolisanti it’s a name, an idea, a challenge. It represents the union of two opposite worlds: the Dolcetto and the Merlot; the barrique and the piedmontese traditional winery.

The dilemma among innovation and tradition and lastly the question: is wine a rightful pleasure or a dangerous sin? Its all these things in a bottle, wrapped by the beautiful frescos of the gothic chapel of San Fiorenzo in Bastia Mondovì.
