ABOUT THIS WINE
Grapes are harvested by hand in plastic crates between the end of September and the end of October.
In the months before the harvest, clusters are selected carefully and are picked when the phenolic ripeness is at its best. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled tanks and is combined with long skin-contact maceration which last 20-30 days, sometimes with submerged cap management. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel and concrete tanks. The wine is aged in big Slavonian oak barrels and French oak tonneaux for minimum 24-30 months. The wine is bottled during the summer and ages in bottle before being released.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
The vineyards form the heritage, the beating heart of Bruna Grimaldi Azienda Agricola. Bruna and Franco have always believed in this land and, with hard work and dedication, in the past 20 years have bought plots in different municipalities in the Barolo area, all of them being well suited to the Nebbiolo and Barbera vines.
Their winery owns 15 hectares planted with vines, divided between small and large plots. The fragmentation of the vineyards is one of the strengths of our business because it allows them to offer high quality from the different terroirs that make up the Langhe where microclimates, soils and exposures conveys important and unique characteristics to the wines.
