"The 2016 Dogliani San Luigi is fabulous. An infusion of black cherry, smoke, gravel, licorice and plum hits the palate in a deeply expressive, mid-weight Dogliani endowed with superb flavor intensity and personality. All the elements are beautifully fused together in this fabulous wine from Chionetti. " (VM)

"Shows good freshness on the nose with balsamic, blueberry skin, bracken and brambleberries. Tight, bright and very well poised and structured. Minerally on the finish. Drink now." (JS)
