Parlapa or “He Who Talks Too Much” – a phrase meant to intone the need to let the wine, not the person, do the talking, or perhaps an overly confident neighbor – is a bolder Dolcetto from lower yielding vineyards and aged for two years in large oak. The result of 3 generations of Piemontese winemaking expertise.
