Le Piane 2016 Maggiorina Vino Rosso

Description

Nebbiolo (40%), Croatina (40%), Vespolina (5%)  and 9 other local varieties including some whites

“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.
