Monchiero Nebbiolo D'Alba 2019 DOC is a well-structured, harmonious, dry red wine with balanced tannins and a fresh scent reminiscent of ripe fruit and undergrowth. Perfect with appetizers, game, lamb and poultry. The Nebbiolo is already drinking well and will continue to do so for the next six years.
The Nebbiolo grapes come from a vineyard owned by the Monchiero family in the municipality of Alba, locality "Scaparoni". The manual harvest usually takes place during the month of October. After destemming, fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. For expansion, the wine is placed in large oak barrels and matures there for a good year. After a short period of bottle storage, the Nebbiolo finally goes on sale.
The producer: Monchiero
In Castiglione Falletto, in the heart of the Barolo area, the path of the Monchiero family to wine began in the 50s. The brothers Remo and Maggiorino Monchiero, who were still in who lived in the municipality of La Morra cultivated the first vineyards in Castiglione Falletto. At first, as was quite common at the time, they only sold their grapes to the cooperative.
It wasn't until the early 1970s that they decided to produce their own wine, bottle it and offer it for sale. This step involved a great risk at the time, because most winegrowers couldn't do it alone from the viticulture live and operated also agriculture or arable farming and animal husbandry. However, her courage paid off as the brothers found an importer who would sell their entire Barolo collection in the United States.
Another turning point in the wine business was the entry of Vittorio Monchiero, son of Maggiorino, into the company. He graduated from the wine school in Alba in the 80s and was gradually integrated into the company that his father and uncle had set up.
After marrying his wife Daniela, he took over the wine cellar and marketing in the 90s, traveled and attended trade fairs all over the world. Tradition and innovation left their mark, production grew, not least thanks to the acquisition of exquisite properties, mainly in Castiglione Falletto and La Morra, but also in Alba, Roddi and Verduno. The family in La Morra owns the entire Cri Cru Roere Santa Maria.
The next generation Monchiero is now ready. In 2017, Vittorio's eldest son, Luca, joined the family winery, while Stefano, his second-born, is studying at the University of Agricultural Sciences to continue the family tradition, which means: Sustainable Baroli in the sense of culture and tradition in the interplay between to produce man and nature.
