NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 a beautiful deep ruby red;
👃🏻 on the nose, it expresses a fruity bouquet (ripe red and black fruits) with chalky mineral hints, with tobacco, vanilla, liquorice; tertiary notes become predominant with time.
👄 on the palate it is a full-bodied, fresh, harmonious, mineral and savoury wine, thanks to the nature of the soil. Elegant and very long finish.
Botticino is a very persistent wine with an excellent alcohol content, it combines strength and elegance and is perfect with structured and richly flavoured red meat main courses, such as braised or stewed meats.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
The vineyards are located in the commune of Botticino, 350 metres above sea level, in the centre of the amphitheatre of Botticino hills, an area particularly suited to wine production. The soil is marly clay, characterised by the presence of Botticino marble, which shapes the hills of the area. Harvesting takes place at the end of September, by hand, selecting the best grapes, which are delicately destemmed. Fermentation at a controlled temperature for 15 days, with punching down and pumping over. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in old oak barrels, in which the wine is aged for 18 months. Maturation in bottle for 6 months.
YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR...
The ageing potential.
The company is located in Botticino. A small DOC area bordering Brescia and famous throughout the world for its marble, also used for the construction of the White House and the Altare della Patria in Rome. The name Botticino is given to the wine produced in the 'Valverde', a valley that is home to a number of clusters of houses that, joined together, form the village of Botticino. The favourable exposure of the land, sunny and protected by the chain, and the clayey-calcareous nature of the soils, located on the slopes of the steep hills east of Brescia, create an ideal environment for the production of red wines with typicality and body, which reach perfection with ageing. The rocky hills of Brescia, comprising the municipalities of Botticino, Brescia and Rezzato, boast a very ancient winegrowing tradition, testified to by the discovery of some fossil remains of vitis silvestris, ancestor of vitis vinifera sativa, dating back as far as five thousand years before Christ.
The Noventa winery is located in the municipality of Botticino, in the province of Brescia. The vineyards extend over some ten hectares in the foothills of the Brescian Pre-Alps near the famous Botticino marble quarries and are south-south-east facing and enjoy sunshine throughout the day. The winery's history dates back to the end of the 19th century, when Pierangelo's great-grandparents cultivated vineyards on the difficult slopes at the foot of the Pre-Alps, and during the 1970s Pierangelo himself decided to carry on the family tradition, going against the trend of farmers in that difficult area, who tended to abandon the fields to devote themselves to more profitable activities; Pierangelo implemented a recovery activity of abandoned vineyards in the Botticino area and dedicated himself to the new rebirth of that Lombardy wine. In 2011 came the turning point, when with satisfaction the winery was enrolled in the register of organic operators of the Lombardy Region, giving rise to the production of even more genuine wines, sons of their territory.
