"La Martana" Piemonte DOC Freisa 2020 - Vinchio Vaglio

Freisa is one of Piedmont's 'minor' grape varieties, too often unjustly forgotten but capable of producing wines of great pleasure. In the past, Freisa grapes were often used in blends with other vines to provide them with special characteristics, particularly aromas. In this case, on the contrary, the Vinchio Vaglio winery works the grapes in purity, obtaining a wine of great pleasantness and great typicality. Of a ruby red colour with violet reflections, this La Martana, Piemonte DOC, has the typical scent of violets. In the mouth it is dry, only slightly tannic, but above all very lively. A perfect wine for every occasion. Good to accompany a rich snack of cheese and cold cuts, at the table it goes perfectly with tasty dishes such as a nice lasagna or roast veal with potatoes. The wine is super versatile. Hard to go wrong.

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

  • Location Piedmont
  • Grapes FREISA 100%
  • Sensations Colour: ruby red with purple highlights. Nose: intensely fruity with distinct notes of raspberry and rose. Palate: balanced, fresh and soft, pleasant. Dry finish with well-blended tannins.
  • Vinification After destemming and crushing the grapes, the must is transferred to temperature-controlled fermenters. Alcoholic fermentation with maceration lasts about 5 days at a constant temperature of about 24°C in order to best extract the aromas derived from the vine. During maceration, automatic pumping-over is carried out periodically to recover the polyphenolic substances present in the skins. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation starts immediately in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 18°C. After the necessary racking required to obtain the right degree of clarification, the wine is left to rest in steel tanks for about 5 months at a temperature of about 10°C. Before release, it remains in the bottle for about three months.
