Rizzi

 Vineyard Profile

The Barbaresco wine is produced from Nebbiolo grapes harvest in the Crü Rizzi.  The Rizzi Cru is extensive, so it is no surprise that within it, there are substantial variations for characteristic of the soil, exposure and altitude.  It’s for this that our Barbaresco is so particular, and the Rizzi hill is incontestably one of the most famous in the Langhe area.

Harvest:  the grapes are handpicked usually the first week of October (with small variation depending on the weather)

Fermentation and Maceration:  in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures, not exceeding values of 30°C, for a period of 25-35 days

Malolactic Fermentation:  following the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is racked and undergoes a malolactic fermentation, which normally lasts a month

Ageing:  for the Barbaresco aging is provided for about 12-15 months in oak barrles, then into concrete tanks for 8 months and then ion bottle before the selling, 3 years after the harvest
