Description

"Bricco Magno" Langhe Rosso DOC is made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, sourced from selected vineyards in the Langhe and Roero areas. The sites are selected for their soil and aspect, and yield per hectare is 60 hectolitres.

The grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, and soft crushed. Maceration last for approximately 20 days, and alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is put into French-oak barrique for about one year, then transferred to large (88Hl) Slavonian oak casks for a further two years.

Alcohol content: 13.5% alc./vol..

Tasting Note

Our Tasting Note: Ruby red with garnet hints. Aromas and flavours remind us of Barolo: dry rose, cherry, raspberry, cocoa, and vanilla spice. Harmonious, firm and full on the palate with a lingering finish.

Recommended pairings: meat dishes, particularly braised dishes, and ripe and aged cheeses.

About the Grape

Nebbiolo: Distinguished red-wine grape, native to Piedmont; the only grape behind Barolo DOCG and Barbaresco DOCG. Since it needs a long time to ripen, vines grown on select hillside (south-facing) sites generally produce the best wines. These have maximum aromatic complexity, fullness of flavour, and substantial tannins, which explains why Barolo is called the "King of Wine - Wine of Kings". There are actually three principle clones of Nebbiolo -- Lampia, Michet, and Rosé -- and in other parts of Italy Nebbiolo may be known as Spanna, Picutener, or Chiavennasca. Nebbiolo is grown in other parts of the world but we haven't yet come across a version that can match the potential of the grape grown in Piedmont or Lombardy.

Villadoria

Over the years, the Lanzavecchia family, winemakers for four generations, has witnessed the evolution of an area which has its most precious treasure in wine. The Serralunga d'Alba hills are the ideal location for the cultivation of the native vines at the origin of Piedmont's most prestigious wines. It is in this invaluable land that Villadoria is located on the Cappallotto Estate: over 20 hectares in the heart of the Langhe, mostly devoted to grape growing.
The Lanzavecchia family believe in the idea of evolution of tradition in all its aspects. Being abreast of the times means applying the most modern technology to the concept of traditional production which takes meticulous care with every stage of the process, from cultivation of the vineyard to distribution of the finished product.
