PARLAPA – DOGLIANI SUPERIORE DOCG
“He who talks too much”
Made from organic certified grapes which have been hand selected from our
vineyards in just above the town of Dogliani. One of the main characteristics of
Parlap, roughly translated as “he who talks too much” is born from the combined
wine making knowledge of my grandfather, father and myself and as such is very
much a family affair of generations. The Dolcetto grape originates from the
Dogliani area and was first used to make wine in the 1100’s.
