Technical Info

Vineyard

Our Valmaggiore is the product of Luciano,s incredible passion for the Nebbiolo grape variety and the desire to show just how its expression can vary depending on the soil in which it is grown. The grapes used to make this wine are cultivated in one of the historic cru vineyards of the Roero district - Valmaggiore - situated in the municipality of Vezza d'Alba, and were first harvested by Luciano in 1994. The hill is characterized by an extreme slope and very sandy soil which, together with the plant density of 8000 vines per hectare and low yield, convey a particular, rich yet elegant and always fruity chararacter.

Vinification

Each lot was vinified separately. After destemming and light crushing, must is "sealed" with CO2 for gentle warm maceration of approximately a day. Alcoholic fermentation begins about 24-36 hours later from native wild yeasts only.
Alcoholic Fermentation: 20 days in steel.
Maceration: Gentle maceration in upright open-top steel tanks for the first 7-9 days of the alcoholic fermentation.
Malolactic Fermentation: Immediately after alcoholic fermentation in used French oak casks with a capacity of 500l(tonneaux).
Ageing: 12 months in used French oak tonneaux of 500l, then 9 months in bottle.
