Giovanni Manzone – Barolo Bricat – 2017

Barolo Bricat comes from the Gramolere vineyard, named after the old owner of the parcel, which was later purchased in 1994 by the Manzone family. These are 50-plus-year-old vines facing southwest with soils rich in stone and red clay, which give the wines structure and power. In this case there are vineyards with the old Rosè clone, which also gives more intense aromas and rosier colors to the nebbiolo. After spontaneous fermentation and 40-day maceration, the wine is aged for 3 years in large oak barrels in addition to a few months in cement vats and bottle. The wine is sold after almost 5 years. Fuller-bodied wine with balsamic and red fruit aromas, wrapping and dry tannins.

The wines of Giovanni Manzone winery encapsulate a centuries-old history, children of a tradition retraced from generations to the present day, where quality and continuity are the main points of the winery’s philosophy.
As early as the end of the 1800s, the Manzone family resided in the hamlet of Castelletto di Monforte and cultivated vineyards and wheat as well as taking care of livestock, but wine production was still a distant concept, as the grapes were sold to the local social cooperative. It was not until after the Great War, thanks to pioneer Giovanni Manzone, that more attention began to be paid to working the vineyards, for example, buying a Lamborghini tractor to work the steep hillside terrain and beginning to produce the first house wines. We are talking about the years of Piedmont’s Malora, a completely devastated territory, where most of the farmers were abandoning their lands to find working fortunes in the big cities. The Manzone family has always been faithful to the Langa expanses of land, and in 1960 they produced their first label of Barolo until they achieved international success in the 1980s thanks to their collaboration with American importer Marc de Grazia.
In all these years of history the approach in the vineyard and in the cellar has never changed, preferring long aging in large oak barrels and respect for the land trying to enhance the different microclimates derived from the soils.
Nowadays the winery cultivates 7 hectares of vineyards, producing extremely typical wines, from the native white Rossese, Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Barolo.
True Langa wines.
