Barolo DOCG Monvigliero

Region: Piemonte

Sub-region: Verduno


This 2 ha. vineyard has a southerly exposure, with vines planted at an altitude of 380 m.asl, and range between the 15 - 40 year mark. Soil is of a medium density, with an healthy proportion of chalk and limestone. Vines are guyot-trained, with 4,500 planted per ha.


Grapes are entirely hand harvested, and during the pre-fermentation phase no technical machinery is allowed - rather, grapes are foot-crushed, making this one of Italy's last remaining wines to be produced in the old way. Next the wine is fermented by submerged cap maceration for over a month, and then matured for 30 months in barrells of 35 hl. French and Slovenian oak. The wine is usually bottled in August and then laid to rest for 24 months.
