In September, we have accompanied a group of content creators and lifestyle journalists to discover the project designed by Alessandro Salvano in Montelupo Albese. DWNL®, acronym for Drink Wines Not Labels, is not only the name of the brand, but also the manifesto chosen by Alessandro for his winemaking journey started in 2019. The focus of the project is clear from the beginning: Alessandro wants to channel his passion for Burgundy, and does so by vinifying Nebbiolo with a whole bunch fermentation, using exclusively indigenous yeasts, without clarification or filtration and with low quantities of sulphites. Four years and five harvests later, DWNL® presented the new vintages of classic products from the Langa and some international contamination: Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. An afternoon in the vineyards that give life to these wines born outside the borders, beyond the rules and schemes of Disciplinari. An experience that reached its high point at sunset, with a special tasting among the rows, followed by a dinner paired with Barolo, at Petti’s Bistrot, under the striking walls of the Castle. Here, Chef Gabriele Boffa – from the 1 Michelin star restaurant La Locanda del Sant’Uffizio in Penango – surprised the guests with his creations, paired with a special selection of wines curated by Salvano. A journey where we tried to forget rules and preconceptions and to let ourselves be carried away by pure winemaking passion, not restricted by the label.
