We recommend kicking things off with a carne cruda, the Piedmontese style steak tartar. The fresh flavors of the dish will match beautifully with the elegance of the wine. The silky texture and beautiful layers of flavor of this Marziano Abbona San Luigi Dogliani Dolcetto are lovely with rich meats. Calves liver with onions and raisins may sound like an odd combination, but it marries perfectly with the earthiness of the wine as well as its fruit and floral side. Bring your meal to a close with refilled glasses and an Italian Grana Padano cheese. Last but not least, we have to mention another very attractive thing about this Piedmontese red: the price! Happy shopping winelovers!

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Marziano Abbona's 2017 Dogliani San Luigi is an absolutely delicious, value-priced offering from Marziano Abbona. Inky blue and purplish berry fruit, lavender, licorice and menthol run through this striking, engaging Dogliani. Soft and curvy, the San Luigi is an irresistible Piedmont red. Drink 2019-2025." May 2019

Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors are matched to a supple texture and solid structure in this harmonious red. Earth and tobacco notes add depth. Drink now through 2024." Feb 2019

Winery:  "This wine is the result of a very rich and intense vintage. The color shows the classic ruby red with the characteristic purple hues, the nose is very fruity, evident and very powerful. The hot and dry summer vigorously pushes the San Luigi with intense fruity scents, richer than in previous vintages. The classic almond finish and the tannin typical of Dolcetto grapes complete the aromatic frame. It's a perfect food pairing red wine. Serve between 61-64 degrees F."
