Le Piane, Maggiorina 2018
Field Blend, mostly Nebbiolo & Croatina.
In the 90s, and together with enologist Alexander Trolf, Christoph Kuenzli visited Boca and its forgotten vineyards and both became enthusiastic about the region and its excellent potential. At that time we became acquainted with Antonio Cerri, one of the last winegrowers to produce the typical and outstanding Boca wine who turned over his vineyards and cellar to them. “Maggiorina” refers to a unique trellising system used for these vines in which it uses four posts and creates a sort of cup. A majority of this wine comes from 80-100 year-old vines and made with little to no intervention. It expresses bright red fruits, a touch of spicyness, and white pepper.
