Quinto Chionetti, the grandfather of the current owner Nicola Chionetti, with foresight, long ago bought a small vineyard, Roncaglie, in the Barolo municipality of La Morra. This location is now one of the best crus in La Morra and the wines from this location impress with their elegance and harmony.
The manual harvest of the Nebbiolo grapes usually takes place during October. After destemming and light pressing of the berries, the mash ferments in wooden vats. The expansion then takes place over a two-year period in large oak barrels. After all, the wine matures in the bottle for another six months.
The bouquet of this Barolo wine impresses with fruity and floral aromas. Primarily dried roses, peaches and cherries, but there is also a spicy scent and a hint of liquorice. On the palate, the Barolo feels warm and elegant. The tannins are fine, the balance is very good with a good finish and light earthy notes. This Barolo is to be enjoyed immediately and for the next ten years. A perfect partner with lamb, game, red meat and aged cheeses.
The Chionetti Winery in the San Luigi Valley of the Italian town of Dogliani has a long history as one of the top Dolcetto producers in the country.
In 1912, Giuseppe Chionetti founded the winery by acquiring some plots in the San Luigi Valley. Its wines gained local popularity.
Giuseppe's son Quinto took control of the Chionetti winery and began exporting wines to other countries. Quinto Chionetti earned the reputation of an excellent winemaker. Through his commitment, the company became synonymous with the Dolcetto di Dogliani.
Tragically, Quinto's son Andrea, who took over the winery, died in an accident. Quinto worked hard to keep the winery alive and in 2013 his grandson Nicola took over the management of the family business.
Nicola has continued to develop the winery, both in terms of the quality of the wines and the type of wines produced. The Chionetti family bought plots in three well-known Barolo crus. The Chionetti Barolo wines are produced under Italian law in the Barolo growing region, while all other wines continue to be produced in the original family business in Dogliani.
Chionetti practices organic wine production.
