Darmagi is a single vineyard, the first post-prephylloxera Cabernet planted in Piedmont, whose name derives from the Piedmontese dialect and means "what a pity"; this word was pronounced by Giovanni Gaja when he realized that he had involuntarily planted Cabernet Sauvignon instead of Nebbiolo. The grapes are fermented and macerated for about 3 weeks and then aged in wood for 24 months.

The nose shows a varied and well-defined bouquet with floral hints of violet and spicy notes of paprika, cassis fruit and licorice. In the glass it pours with an intense and dark ruby red color; a sip with a remarkable structure, refined and at the same time complex, and characterized by a fine tannic texture. 

Excellent wine to be savored in combination with first courses with savory sauces, aged cheeses, game, roasts, grilled and stewed meat. A drink for true connoisseurs and enthusiasts of winemaking excellence.
