Winery

The history of the Poderi Luigi Einaudi began in 1897 when Luigi Einaudi, barely twenty-three, bought the 'San Giacomo' farmhouse in the municipality of Dogliani, a noble 18th-century building with a ruined deconsecrated chapel and forty “giornate” Piedmontese vineyard (roughly 15 hectares). 
Under the enlightened guidance of the founder, the farms of Senator Luigi Einaudi, began to bottle the Dolcetto and get it out of the regional boundaries, where it was relegated. 

The Poderi Einaudi continue to grow by investing in the best vineyards that have become available over time. The latest acquisitions are the prestigious "Vigna Cannubi" in Barolo and four hectares in the Barbaresco hills.
Matteo Sardagna, son of Paola, nephew of Luigi Einaudi, deals with the management of the Poderi Einaudi following the family tradition and the teaching of the President: "innovation in respect of tradition".

Pairings

Wine pairing notes

Wine as this Langhe Doc, as a rule of thumb, are good matches for dishes based on beef. The pairing with this specific dish – although it works well – could not be given for granted on the paper. Instead the elegance of the wine, its fruitiness, even the spiced final notes are an intriguing combination with the spices and overall the black pepper dominance in condiments of the dish. The hints of chocolate and cream in the mouth are a good balance to the pungency and the respectable finish of the wine leaves the palate with a pleasant sensation, refreshing and intense at the same time.
