“Maggiorina,” a somewhat lighter wine, is produced from grapes grown in old “Maggiorina” vineyards (25 different small fields). These fields are planted mixing twelve different varieties of grapes (mostly Nebbiolo and Croatina but even some white varietals) to give a real field blend. The wine is released after one year of aging in stainless steel tanks and, as well as the characteristic mineral and spicy taste, it also has hints of fresh fruits.
Production Area: Province of Novara.
Vineyards: in the Boca region
Vineyard Age: 40 - 100 years old
Vineyard altitude: 1300 to 1475 feet above sea level
The name “Maggiorina” comes from the traditional Maggiorina training system, where four vines evolve in the four cardinal points, and form a cup.
