Langhe D.O.C. Bianco Dragon
The Dragon, symbol of courage, was the last drawing by Gianni Gallo. His wish for the Vaira Family’s new adventure
A wine originating from a field blend of white varieties mostly planted side by side, harvested and vinified together
Luigi and Fiorina have always tended their vines with the utmost care. One episode really illustrates their care. Summer of 2008, two days after a serious hailstorm that hit Serralunga: their vineyards showed no signs of damage because the couple had ‘cleaned’ every single bunch to make sure ruined berries wouldn’t affect the rest of the cluster.
Vintage 2022 and winemaking
2022 was one of the longest harvests for Langhe Bianco Dragon. Whole cluster pressing was followed by a long and gentle fermentation at low temperature. Dragon 2022 was kept on the fine lees with minimum battonage throughout the winter.
A brilliant light-yellow hue is enriched with floral and fruity aromas alongside mineral aromas at the end. Dry, warm, soft and savory on the palate, with a pungent and balanced freshness.
