In 2019 we purchased a new Barolo vineyard at La Morra in the MGA Serradenari. It’s a new challenge to grow Nebbiolo at almost 500 meters above sea level, with a fine southern exposure and facing the Piedmontese Alps. A parcel is destined to produce this complex and long-lived Langhe Nebbiolo which we have called “Reggimento”.
Grapes handpicked in the month of October, de-stemmed and pressed. Contact with the skins lasts approximately three to four weeks and includes the fermentation and successive post-fermentation maceration with the traditional submerged cap system. The malolactic fermentation takes place in steel containers.
Refining for approx. 12 months, part in barriques and part in oak barrels, followed by bottle refinement for approx. 6 months.
The historical “soldier” label was created by Renato Ratti to recall the heroism of the Piedmontese regiments in defense of their region in the Napoleonic period (1800).
The Albeisa – from the name of the city of Alba – it is the iconic bottle created by Renato Ratti in 1973, desired as a way of identifying the uniqueness of a territory and its wines.
A pale ruby red. Fine and persistent fragrance with trace scents reminiscent of violets and roses. A full and spicy flavor. A wine well suited to red meats on the spit and grilled, game, truffled fondue, agnolotti, Italian gourmet dishes of white and red meats, also with spiced sauces.
