There are 2 units left in stock.
ABOUT THIS WINE
Bricco Ambrogio is a Barolo of great elegance. This plot has a perfect exposure to the sun and a hot microclimate where Nebbiolo clusters are always picked earlier and can differentiate themselves in the rainier and cooler vintages.
Soil: very steep with grey-blue marls arranged in homogeneous layers, clay in medium quantity, good presence of limestone, rare presence of sand. Soil composition: Marne di Sant’Agata Fossili. Manual harvest.
In the months before the harvest, clusters are selected carefully and are harvested when the phenolic ripeness is at its best. This wine goes through the single-vineyard vinification, temperature-controlled fermentation with a long skin contact maceration that lasts about 20-30 days, sometimes with submerged cap. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel and concrete tanks. The wine ages in big Slavonian oak barrels and French oak tonneaux for about 24-30 months. The wine is aged 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.
The Grimaldi family has always farmed uniquely indigenous grape varieties: Arneis, a very old native grape to this region and the only white grape of our winery; Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo are the red grapes. These grape varieties are spread over different villages in the Barolo region and the neighbouring municipalities.
