Poggio di Caro

Vintage 2021

The vintage began with a mild and a long winter with little rainfall. Budding started in early April, followed by some night frosts. The month ended with temperatures below the average and well distributed rainfall. May was characterized by cool temperatures and frequent rains. June and July were hot and with little rainfall. The development of the vineyard was delayed compared to 2020. In August there were no heat waves. The harvest began on 29th August with the first parcel of Alta Langa and continued at a regular pace along with all the other grapes. Yields per hectare were below the average. The grapes were healthy and with perfect ripening parameters and surprisingly balanced in acidity.

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 and softly pressed.

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

FERMENTATION PROCESS: A part of the must is chilled and kept in an inert environment (nitrogen). This step lasts for 12 to 15 hours at 8-10°C (cryomaceration). Then the fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature.

BOTTLE REFINING: POGGIO DI CARO is refined only in bottle for about 3 months before realising.

The difference is...

POGGIO DI CARO is a faithful representation of the sandy soil of the Roero area. Crispy, fruity, and very enjoyable, it represents the younger side of the UNESCO area site of south Piemonte.
POGGIO DI CARO is a white wine with a gentle fascinating character.
