Bruna Grimaldi Nebbiolo d’Alba Bonurei 2021
Winemaking and Maturation
The grapes are destemmed and fermented in temperature-controlled tanks where skin-contact maceration is enhanced for about 15-20 days. Punch downs and délastage are carried out carefully. A spontaneous malolactic fermentation occurs after the alcoholic fermentation. It follows the racking of the wine into 500 and 700 litres tonneaux and big barrels where it ages for about 6 months. Formats available: bottle (0.75L), magnum (1.5L).
Nebbiolo is the synonym for elegance which is pursued in this wine. Nebbiolo d’Alba is the young and fresh expression of this grape variety. This is a 100% Nebbiolo wine produced with grapes from parcels located in three villages.
It shows floral aromas with hints of ripe fruit and spices. On the palate, elegant tannins blend with the structure and find a harmonious balance with ageing.
