Nebbiolo d'Alba 'Valmaggiore', Giacomo Grimaldi

  • Situated in the commune of Vezza d’Alba, north of the Tanaro River
  • This vineyard is a feat of heroic winemaking: an amphitheater located on a steep sandstone drop, where tractors cannot go and the vines can only be reached on foot.
  • 5-7 day maceration followed by 18 months in French barriques (50% new, 50% 2nd & 3rd use)
  • 625 cases produced annually
