"Gajera" Piemonte DOC Pinot Nero 2018 - Vinchio Vaglio

Although it originates in France, in the Burgundy region to be precise, Pinot Noir has shown over the years that it can adapt to different climates and soils. But it has to be handled with care, since by nature this grape is rather pretentious and requires a great deal of attention to produce quality wines. In Piedmont, in particular, it seems that the conditions are ideal, and this Gajera is a clear demonstration of this. The name refers to a place-name that refers to the refuge of magpies or jays ("gaja" in dialect) in the woods of the Valsarmassa nature reserve. After vinification, most of the wine goes into barriques, new or second passage. Maturation continues for about 16 months, before a further passage in steel and meeting the bottle. Then, before marketing, the wine remains in the cellar for a further year. Only at that point is it truly ready to be appreciated at its best. Ruby red in colour with purple highlights, this Pinot Noir has a complex bouquet, with aromas of spices, small red fruits and floral hints on the finish. In the mouth it is warm, persuasive and fresh at the same time. Try it with classic grilled fillet steak or a board of well matured cheeses.

In 1959, the year it was founded, there were only 19. Today, in 2021, there are 192 members of the Cantina Cooperativa Vinchio e Vaglio Serra. In total they manage with care and passion about 450 hectares of vineyards. In particular Barbera, the so-called "Rubino di Vinchio", but also other typical local vines, such as Dolcetto, Cortese, Grignolino, Nebbiolo, Brachetto, Moscato, Freisa and Bonarda. To this dense group of autochthonous vines, i.e. typical of the area, we can also add the international vines that are best suited to the hills of Piedmont, such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Viognier. The vineyards, most of which are on very steep slopes, make the work particularly demanding but, at the same time, guarantee optimal exposures that result in perfect ripening. The quality of the harvested grapes is, of course, also influenced by the nature of the soil, whose mineral components guarantee the production of high quality wines. The winery, on the other hand, is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and modern winemaking facilities, and also has a large barrique cellar, built into the hillside, which guarantees constant and natural temperature and humidity. Here there are French oak barriques and barrels of various capacities, where the wines can age slowly. For as long as necessary.

Technical Data Sheet

CHARACTERISTICS
  • TypeDry still red DOC
  • Location Piedmont
  • Grapes PINOT NERO 100%
  • Sensations Colour: ruby red with garnet purple reflections. Nose: complex with aromas of spices, with notes of small red fruits and floral hints on the finish. Taste: warm, persuasive and fresh at the same time.
  • Vinification After destemming-crushing of the grapes, the must is transferred to temperature-controlled horizontal vinifiers. Alcoholic fermentation with maceration lasts about 5 days at an initial temperature of 20°C, gradually rising to 25°C in order to best extract the aromas derived from the vine and the polyphenolic substances present in the skin. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation starts immediately in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 18°C. Once fermentation is complete, most of the wine goes into barriques, mostly new and to a lesser extent second passage, where it remains for about 16 months. After a further month in stainless steel tanks, the wine is bottled and aged for another year before release.
