Bramaterra Riserva Magnum, 2015, La Palazzina, Alto-Piedmont
Founded in 1986, La Palazzina is a small estate in the lesser known region of Alto Piedmont, part of the DOC Bramaterra. This magnum is from 2015, and drinking beautifully now, as Nebbiolo (80% of the blend) really benefits from some time to soften in the bottle. The Riserva wines are aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 36 months and are given a further 12 months in bottle, prior to release.
The estate is 4Ha in size, based mostly on mineral-rich, volcanic soils and the vineyards are farmed sustainably. With minimal intervention in the winery, and low sulphur use, these wines are pure, expressive and fine, with brilliant varietal typicity.
