Grumello Rocca De Piro 2017 - Arpepe
The Grumello cru has a little more topsoil above the granite than neighbouring vineyards in Sassella and Inferno and tends to produce wines which are a little less angular, a little softer and full. Here, fifty year old vines sit between 350 to 500 metres above sea level and the wine spends four months on skins in tini, before being pressed off to old chestnut botti to rest for a year and a half. This is a fruit-forward, less austere take on Nebbiolo.
