Poggio di Caro

Vintage 2018

The 2018 vintage opened with a long winter extended until March, with plenty of rainfall, restoring the soil’s water supply. Flowering and subsequent berry set took place regularly and in optimal climatic conditions. Green harvesting became necessary for nearly all varietals in order to curb production. Development was gradual during the summer; a long period of constant fine weather helped the grapes to ripen without the harvest needing to be brought forward. It has been a vintage that demanded the attention of winegrowers in their management of the vineyard in order to achieve the best results possible.

Winemaking Information

PRE-FERMENTATION PROCEDURES: Grape bunches are hand-sorted on a vibrant 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.

In a few words, we can say that POGGIO DI CARO is a white wine with character.
