  • Grape variety(ies): Nebbiolo 80%, vespolina 10% et croatina 10%

Only one red wine is produced here, but what a wine! Indeed, it has been a long time since we have felt such emotion when tasting a wine from this region. This Bramaterra is moving in its aromatic complexity, with cherry, citrus, pepper and incense aromas emerging. The palate is both delicate and vinous, supported by tannins that are deftly extracted, tight but noble. If it can already be approached after an hour in a decanter and served at 18°, its ageing potential is important: 15 to 30 years in a good cellar.

Viticulture

Creation of the estate in 2004. First vintage: 2010. Number of plots: 50. The vineyard is composed of a hill in Brusnengo and the slopes of the Pianella in Villa del Bosco. The vines were planted by the current team; they are complemented by 85-year-old plots! The exposure varies from south-west to east, with an altitude of 270 to 380 metres. The presence of mountains increases the thermal amplitudes. The soils, with an acidic pH, are composed of sand and porphyry of volcanic origin in decomposition.

Oenology

After regulating the yields and harvesting by hand when fully ripe, the grapes are destemmed and then stalked. Fermentation takes place in 27 hl French oak truncated cone vats, with pumping over and delestage. In 2014, maceration lasted 38 days for the nebbiolo, 28 for the vespolina and 20 for the croatina. This was followed by 18 months' maturation in 20 and 27 hl French tuns.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Braised beef - Rack of lamb with thyme - Farricello (kind of minestrone).
