Vintage 2017

The 2017 vintage growing year will be remembered for its April frost damage and very hot and dry climate. This is why the conditions were perfect in terms of plant protection. In September, temperatures dropped appreciably with considerable differences between day and night temperatures. This situation helped especially the polyphenolic profile of the red wine grapes with a medium-long vegetative cycle. 2017 can certainly be remembered as one of the earliest years with healthy and complex grapes.

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 and conic oak vats at controlled temperature. The maceration is long acting using délestage and, partially, submerged cap technique for over 28 days.

OAK FEFINING: The ageing of 22 months is made in medium size oak casks (2500-4000 litres).

The difference is...

MONCLIVIO is estate bottled and very well known for its powerful elegance. Thanks to the careful handling from the harvest to the oak refining, the grape characters are perfectly included in the wine.
MONCLIVIO is the result of the harmonious combination between soil, Nebbiolo grape and Enrico Serafino tradition since 1878.
