L'informale - 2021

The harvest of Dolcetto takes place in the middle of September, while Nebbiolo is normally picked at the end of September-October. The grapes, harvested by hand, are crushed, de-stemmed and fermented without the addition of selected yeasts. The Dolcetto remains in the roto-fermentor for around 3 days, with the skins in constant movement. After the maceration it is racked into stainless-steel tanks. Here it finishes the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The Nebbiolo remains in contact with its skins for 2 weeks and then is racked into a stainless-steel tank to complete the fermentations. The two wines are blended in springtime and then bottled in the summer without clarification or filtration. The taste is fresh, fruity and tannic; it is characterized by vinous hints, black berries, cherries …very juicy wine.
