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 Medium Red

Medium red wines can be called “food wines.” They offer up tons of flavor with a balance of zesty acidity which makes them match with a wide variety of foods (from zesty salads to rich and cheesy lasagna). These are the perfect mid-week wines for red wine lovers.

There are many varieties that span the mid-weight red wine category so, to name a few familiar ones, check out Grenache, Sangiovese, Merlot, Zinfandel, Montepulciano, Cabernet Franc and Barbera.
