NEBBIOLO AT THE HEART OF PIEDMONT
Serre di San Pietro is born from one of the most historic vineyards of the Bava family, on the hill of Cadodo in Cocconato. Here the Bava family is been living and cultivating the land since 13 generations.
The area surrounding Cocconato and the panoramic pattern of Serres’s slopes has always had a great tradition in the production of Nebbiolo. That’s why we’ve replanted Nebbiolo grapes at the end of the ‘90s, a decision rewarded by the recognition of the geographical appellation of Monferrato DOC Nebbiolo.
The wine has the typical personality and elegance of full-bodied red wines of this territory. Elegance and structure combine perfectly together emphasizing the armonious freshness of the best Nebbiolos.
Varietal: Nebbiolo 100%
Altitude: 375 metres a.s.l.
Soil: Limestone and marl
Vine training technique: Guyot
The grapes are hand-picked and collected in baskets. After destemming, fermentation starts with skin-contact in stainless steel vats, where the wine ends its fermentation with the malolactic. After decanting, when the wine is bright, the ageing takes place in 15 hl wooden barrels for 10 months and then in bottle.
The wine shows a bright ruby red color. The bouquet is rich and complex, with memories of violet and wild rose petals, black currant and cherries, with the pleasant spiciness given by wood-ageing. On the palate this wine shows silky tannins and a balanced structure, with pleasant balsamic freshness and a long finish.
