Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

Aromatic and ripe but with an elegant palate.

Tasting Notes

Dry perfumes of stone, flowers and summery grass with a slightly savoury taste on the palate. This is the promise of a Serralunga white. The touches of Riesling and Nascetta add to an extra hint of elegance, giving it a long refreshing finish.

Production Notes

Manual harvest took place during the first 15 days of September. A soft crushing was followed by 15 to 20 days of fermentation at temperatures under 16°C. The wine aged in stainless steel until bottling the following spring.
