Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco DOC

2017

In a Nutshell

Aromatic and ripe but with an elegant palate.

Tasting Notes

The wine has perfumes of stone, flowers and summery grass with a full palate of lush, peachy fruit and a slightly savoury note. The touches of Riesling and Nascetta add an extra hint of elegance, giving it a long refreshing and mineral tinged 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.

Press Quotes & Awards

Scored very highly in our tasting for its enchanting citric, almond and floral aromas and its rich creamy savoury palate – it would make an unusual alternative to white Burgundy.
