Vintage 2020

The vintage began with a mild winter followed by the months of March and April marked by fine weather and little rainfall. The rainy days of May and June caused a slowdown in plant growth. The situation was later normalized. The haverst started on August 21 with AltaLanga. Barbera and Nebbiolo ripening has slowed down but it has been taken up in the second half of September. Especially Nebbiolo grapes were harvested in optimal conditions. The 2020 vintage can be said to be extremely good with intense and elegant aromas and with well-balanced wines.

Winemaking Information

PRE-FERMENTATION PROCEDURES: grape bunches are hand-sorted on a vibrating table and chilled with carbonic snow to avoid oxidation and reduce considerably the use of sulphur. After destemming, berries are hand-sorted on a second vibrating table and finally softly crushed.

This process is “100% screw conveyor free” to handle grapes as gently as possible.

FERMENTATION PROCESS: the must is cooled to preserve its best characters before fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. The maceration is long acting using délestage and, partially, submerged cap technique in conic wood vats for over 20 days.

OAK REFINEMENT: the ageing of 20 months is made in medium size oak casks (2500 liters).

The difference is...

Bricco di Neive is a cru of great complexity and takes its name from the peak of the hill where the vineyards are located. Enrico Serafino BRICCO DI NEIVE is an austere Barbaresco at the same time very elegant, as a result of a sustainable production process.

Barbaresco BRICCO DI NEIVE is the proof of the Piemontese Attitude that represents in Enrico Serafino a set of important values: complexity, dedication e perseverance.
