Descrizione vino

This great wine of the Rainoldi winery is produced by Nebbiolo grapes, locally called Chiavennasca coming from the “Dossi Salati”, which are the Grumello vines at the most important altitude. The south exposition and the sandy-gravel ground permit to obtain wonderful wines characteristics for their mineral tastes. The Grumello Riserva fermentation starts with the maceration under temperature control, with regular pumping over and punching-down every 4/5 days. It follows the natural malolactic fermentation until spring time. The aging starts in new French oak barrels for about 16 months and it follows 4 months in stainless steel tanks before being bottled. Finally in bottles for 2 years kept in fresh and dark cellars before being commercialized.
