"Le Nocche" Piemonte DOC Grignolino 2020 - Vinchio Vaglio

Grignolino, a typical red grape variety, is common on the hills of Monferrato, in Piedmont. In all probability its name derives from the dialectal word 'grignolo', meaning grape seed, the abundance of which in the berries gives a pleasant bitterish taste to both the grapes and the wine. A very demanding vine, not easy to grow. In the countryside, it requires the right soil composition and layout, while in the cellar it must be treated with white gloves. The final product, however, generally repays all this effort. To discover it in its most traditional version, Vinchio Vaglio offers this label, Le Nocche, whose name refers to a well-known hamlet in the municipality of Vinchio. Vinified in temperature-controlled steel tanks, at the end of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine is left to age for a few months, again in steel, before bottling. The colour is a clear ruby red, tending towards orange with the passage of time. The nose is richly fruity and vinous, with varietal notes of flowers. In the mouth it is fine, with good freshness and persistence. Dry, savoury and slightly tannic, this Piedmontese red is a true wine for the whole meal. Try it with richly flavoured dishes such as risotto with Castelmagno cheese or, for fans of typical recipes, with Finanziera. True magic.

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.

  • Vinification After destemming and crushing the grapes, the must is transferred to vertical fermenters.
