Luigi Baudana Langhe Bianco Dragon

  • Varietals: 45% Chardonnay, 30% Nascetta, 20% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Riesling

  • Vineyards: Cerretta Piani, located on the north-east shoulder at mid-slope. A fold of this slope makes the plot cooler and more suitable for white grapes.

  • Soils: Below the thin topsoil lies one of the oldest conglomerates of all Piemonte: 14- million-year-old Helvetian soil

  • Farming: Vajra has always believed in sustainable farming and keeps the turf natural and green in the vineyard. Traditional pruning is practised as well as using the Guyot mixed system of trellising. Every phase of winemaking, starting in the vineyard, is done by hand. No irrigation is used, while green harvest is decided according to the vintage

  • Winemaking: A soft crushing, followed by 15 to 20 days of fermentation at temperatures under 16°C. The wine remains in stainless steel tanks until bottling the spring following harvest.
