Winemaker's Notes:

A garnet red color with a delicate, appealing, intense bouquet, reminiscent of violets and dry roses, alcohol soaked cherries, vanilla, tobacco, truffles and pepper. The taste is full, robust, austere but velvety and harmonious.

About Villadoria:

Villadoria, a wine, a deeply-rooted tradition, a bridge to the future. Over the years, the Lanzavecchia family, winemakers for four generations, has witnessed the evolution of an area which has its most precious treasure in wine. The Serralunga d'Alba hills are the ideal location for the cultivation of the native vines at the origin of Piedmont's most prestigious wines. It is in this invaluable land that Villadoria is located on the Cappallotto Estate: over 20 hectares in the heart of the Langhe, mostly devoted to grape growing.

The Lanzavecchia family believes in the idea of evolution of tradition in all its aspects. Being abreast of the times means applying the most modern technology to the concept of traditional production which takes meticulous care with every stage of the process, from cultivation of the vineyard to distribution of the finished product.
