G.D. Vajra Barolo Bricco delle Viole

  • VARIETY: 100% Nebbiolo. Old stumps from 1949 and successive plantings in 1963, 1968 and 1985. Massal selection of Lampia and Michet.

  • VINEYARD AND TERROIR: Bricco delle Viole possesses extremely white soils. Being rich in limestone, magnesium, and manganese, with the added contribution of high altitude and the afternoon breeze, these soils create wines rich of finesse, floral aromas, and freshness.

  • HARVEST AND WINEMAKING: β€œThe old vines of Bricco delle Viole are the last to be harvested, a wait that makes the heart beat faster, because weather can change rapidly in autumn. But the wise farmer knows that the wait will be rewarded with a high aromatic complexity and extreme finesse. In certain vintages the harvest proceeds in order to respect the timing of these old vines. Harvest starts around October 11th and is followed by a maceration lasting about 45 days, 10 days with a submerged cap. The malolactic fermentation occurs in steel in spring following the harvest.”

  • AGING: 32 months in Slavonian oak casks of 25hL before bottling.
