Bruna Grimaldi

We are in Serralunga d'Alba, in the heart of the Langhe. In 1957, Giacomo Grimaldi started selling grapes, and in the 1960s, Giovanni Grimaldi began producing and selling bulk wine, thus laying the foundations of the company: he was very attentive to viticulture and already bottled the best vintages, thus starting an important "historic" path.

In 1990, a new phase began: Bruna Grimaldi and her husband Franco Fiorino brought enthusiasm and new knowledge to the company. Vineyards were purchased in targeted areas to produce wines only from estate-grown grapes. A new cellar was built, work was perfected, and Bruna Grimaldi wines began to be offered in new markets.

Bruna Grimaldi

For all red wines, vinification is traditional: time is the determining factor that allows the precious compounds contained in the skins to be extracted slowly and gently, without forcing. Fermentation takes place in steel and then in cement, controlling temperatures during the various stages and tasting daily. Nebbiolo destined to produce the different Barolos undergoes long macerations with the skins, often "submerged cap", an ancient technique important for defining the complexity and structure of a wine intended for long aging.

The company identifies itself with an "ethical approach" to the vineyard, in full respect of nature, practicing sustainable viticulture, using reasoned methods to bring good, balanced wines to the market that are respectful of the environment and the consumer. Approximately 70,000 bottles are produced each year.

Piedmont

In Piedmont, the first traces of viticulture date back to pre-Roman times (precisely to the Bronze Age, around 1500 B.C.), and although today the peak of quality is found in the region's great red wines, Piedmont also produces excellent white wines and sparkling wines.

The role of Piedmont has been fundamental for the development of modern Italian winemaking. It is here that the first examples of zoning of wine-growing areas were recorded, introducing concepts such as terroir and cru to Italian wines. Thanks to zoning, if a wine is produced exclusively from grapes coming from a single vineyard or parcel, the geographical indication appears on the label, increasing its prestige.

In addition to the geographical delineations indicated on the map, Piedmont is divided into 8 zones that group the 16 DOCG and 42 regional DOCs. Among these, we remember in the north the famous Gattinara DOCG and Ghemme DOCG, near Turin the Erbaluce di Caluso DOCG, in Monferrato the Barbera del Monferrato Superiore DOCG, Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG, Dogliani DOCG, Ovada DOCG, Gavi DOCG, and Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato DOCG, ending with Roero DOCG to the left of the Tanaro river and, in the Langhe region, with the famous Barolo DOCG, Barbaresco DOCG, and Dogliani DOCG.

In Piedmont, the revolution in the world of wine began, bringing Italy back to the forefront of high-quality production. Here, with few exceptions, single-varietal wines are produced, which best express the characteristics of the terroir and magnificently exalt the Piedmontese territory.

Langhe

Langhe, a unique territory for Italian wine production. The presence of valleys and hills at different altitudes, along with different exposures and winds, creates an incredible variety of microclimates. These conditions allow the grapes to express themselves in various ways. The Dogliani area has the coolest climate, being close to the Alps and characterized by narrow and high hill ridges facing the cold plains of Cuneo. The Barolo area has intermediate temperatures, being located in a particular area protected from winds but influenced both by Alpine currents and by warm and humid air rising from the Tanaro valley.

The three hill ridges that make up the area determine a diversity of landscapes and, consequently, microclimates. The Barbaresco area is more homogeneous, with milder temperatures and less abundant rainfall. The landscape characterized by narrow valleys generates greater windiness compared to the two previous areas.

The soils vary: calcareous-marly, clayey, sandy, and gravelly. The main grape varieties cultivated are Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Arneis, Freisa, and Favorita, and then there are international varieties such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc.

The Langhe, renowned Italian wine territory, boast a variety of unique microclimates and landscapes, from Dogliani to Barolo and Barbaresco, which influence the production of complex and distinctive wines thanks to the different soils and exposures.
