About Salvano

Salvano’s history dates back to the 1960s when, surrounded by the vineyards of Diano d’Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, Mr. Angelo Salvano began producing wines in his farmhouse (then called "Grillo"). The fame of his wines grew. He attributed his success to the fruit of hard work and the love of a fertile land. After WWII, the family tradition of wine making grew. Saverio Salvano increased his father’s vision and with an iron will, enlarged the winery and moved to Valle Talloria , where the name “Salvano” became synonymous with quality wine.

About Italy

Italy boasts more indigenous grape varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most Italian wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some Italian wine regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but are declining in popularity, especially as younger growers take interest in reviving local varieties.

Most important are Sangiovese, reaching its greatest potential in Tuscany, as well as Nebbiolo, the prized grape of Piedmont, producing single varietal, age-worthy Piedmontese wines. Other important varieties include Corvina, Montepulciano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola and of course the white wines, Trebbiano, Verdicchio and Garganega. The list goes on.

About Dolcetto

An easy drinking red with soft fruity flavors—but catchy tannins, Dolcetto is often enjoyed in its native Piedmont while more serious Barolos and Barbarescos take their time to age. Here, this is the wine you are most likely to find on the table on a casual weekday night, or for apertivo (the canonical Piedmontese pre-dinner appetizer hour). In recent years Dolcetto has found some footing in California, but plantings are fairly limited outside of Italy.
