The winter of 2019, with the exception of an occasional snowfall and rare rains, was characterized by above normal seasonal averages, favoring an early start to vegetative activity above all in the vineyards with the finest exposures. The weather, generally cool and distinguished by rainfall from April up until the end of May, influenced flowering, reducing the number of berries per bunch and therefore lowing production levels. The month of June, characterized by a generally warm and dry period, preceded new rains in mid-July. The positive temperature swings between daytime warmth and evening and nighttime coolness in August and the continuous crop thinning in the vineyard assisted in safeguarding of the integrity of the fruit. The month of September, which began with a brief but intense period of precipitation, proceeded with rising temperatures and a serene climate up until mid-October. It was certainly a vintage with certain difficulties, with a harvest which was long and limited production, but one which stood out for the excellent quality of the fruit. The picking of the Muscat grapes took place on the 5th of October.
Nebbiolo was hand harvested into baskets and brought to the cellar where the grapes were destemmed, crushed and left to macerate on the skins for approximately 12 hours at room temperature. The crushed grapes were then gently pressed and alcoholic fermentation began at a temperature of 18 °C (64° F). Granadiè was left to age in stainless steel tanks at a controlled low temperature for several months then bottled and released for sale.
Un rosato che nasce nello straordinario territorio delle Langhe, su terreni argillosi con strati sabbiosi del periodo Tortoniano. Sorprende per il suo profumo di rosa e lampone ben integrato da un palato fresco e strutturato. Un vino dal carattere unico.
Granadiè is pinkish in color with orange undertones. The nose is intense with delicate notes of roses and raspberries. The palate reveals pleasant fresh acidity sustained by a good tannic structure.
