Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco DOC

2019

In a Nutshell

Dragon is a symbol of courage for Vajra, who experimented here with local and international white varietals in this fresh and perfumed white wine

Tasting Notes

On the nose, the 2019 Dragon has aromas of hawthorn, citrus and a hint of flint. On the palate, it is structured, with its signature balance between freshness and creaminess. It concludes with a nice saline finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were hand harvested and then carefully sorted. The fruit undergoes a whole cluster gentle pressing with a pneumatic press. Fermentation takes place for 12-15 days in 50 to 70HL vertical stainless steel vats at low temperatures. No malolactic fermentation occurred in 2019.The wine was kept on fine lees to avoid oxidation and was bottled on the 19th and 20th of February.
