Description

Paolo and Michele Dorigati manage their 5.5 hectares of vines in the Piana Rotaliana, a visually striking landscape in the middle of the Dolomite mountains in Trentino.
 
The Teroldego grape is at the heart of the Dorigati operation, and theirs is an outstanding example of this unique wine. Teroldego is a difficult grape to grow and to make wine from, and doesn’t seem to adapt well in other parts of Italy. Typical characteristics of the wine include herbs, spices, strawberry and bell pepper aromas and flavours.
 
The grapes for 'Luigi' come exclusively from the Sottodossi vineyard, where a thin, slightly silty soil and a layer of sand gives way to a foundation of pebbles, making the soil well-drained and pushing the vines to express maximum polyphenolic maturation. Water stress, coupled with the richness of minerals present in the soil, leads to exceptional complexity for Teroldego.
