NOTES FROM OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 characterised by a rosé onion skin colour, fine and persistent perlage;
👃🏻 the nose reveals fresh scents, with floral and fruity notes (of raspberry and redcurrant, but also citrus fruits), delicate hints of bread crust;
👄 the taste is characterised by freshness and delicacy. The sip is delicate thanks to the fine and persistent perlage;
This classic method unfolds fresh, citrusy, fruity and floral notes; it favours light, fresh dishes with a mediterranean flavour.
Therefore, it is perfect with starters or fish-based first and second courses.
The classic rosé method is a single variety cultivated in the nebbiolo vineyards facing you at 300 metres above sea level.
Nebbiolo is not only a noble grape variety and well known for the production of great red wines, but can also be interesting for rosé wines. The grapes are pressed, producing the base, and in the spring following the harvest the draught takes place, where it remains in the bottle for at least 30 months in contact with the second fermentation yeasts, during which time the bottle is remuaged and then disgorged.
YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR...
its freshness and fragrance.
The winery is located in Diano d'Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014.
It is a land of ancient winemaking traditions, where wine was already known before the arrival of the Romans.
The empire brought great contributions to viticulture, for example by deforesting a large part of the Langhe, which was then covered by dense woodland.
The Langhe is divided into Alta Langa and Bassa Langa: the latter is located in the north between the Tanaro and Belbo rivers and is known worldwide for prestigious wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco as well as Pelaverga, Dolcetto d'Alba and Dogliani, Nebbiolo and Barbera.
The Alta Langa, on the other hand, is located further south and has steeper hills reaching up to 750 metres above sea level; here Alta Langa, moscato and barbera and the rare timorasso are produced.
Thanks to the cultivation of chardonnay and pinot noir, Alta Langa has succeeded over the years in producing classic method and charmat sparkling wines of national and international renown.
The soils of the Langhe are composed of clayey-calcareous sedimentary marls, interspersed with layers of more or less important grey-blue marls, an important characteristic for producing both full-bodied red wines and fresh, fragrant bubbles. The Langhe area is characterised by a temperate continental climate, with the peak of rainfall generally fixed during the month of May.
The history of the Bricco Maiolica winery began in 1928, when Bernardo Accomo, known as Cumot, bought the first 5 hectares of land, the Bricco Maiolica, in the Diano d'Alba area of the Langhe.
Initially the vines were all Dolcetto; the Barbera vines were planted a couple of years later in a plot called Vigna Vigia.
Giuseppe, grandfather of the current oenologist Beppe Accomo, decided to cultivate nebbiolo grapes as well, while it was Angelo (Beppe's father) who introduced white grape varieties.
The company currently has 24 hectares of vineyards, characterised by low yields and great attention to maintaining the natural balance of the environment: Bricco Maiolica does not use fungicides or anti-mould in the vineyards. Twelve wines are produced by the company: among the reds, the classic Piedmontese Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba and Langhe Nebbiolo; the outstanding Barbera d'Alba Superiore Vigna Vigia and Nebbiolo d'Alba Superiore Cumot. Also the whites are very interesting.
