PARLAPÀ – DOGLIANI SUPERIORE DOCG
Amazing wine for the complexity of its structure, it shows an intense and deep ruby red colour with vivid purple reflections.
This wine is grown in the best South, South-East exposures. We carefully follow the season’s course and carry out accordingly a very accurate thinning in August and an accurate selection during the harvesting process.
