Accornero Bricco del Bosco Vigne Vecchie Grignolino 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

About the Winery In the northern part of the Piedmont is where Barbera finds its boldest expression. These hills are called the Monferrato, and are not far from the town of Vignale. Amongst what remains of a multifaceted agriculture, the Accornero winery is situated in the middle of its artfully planted vineyard lots. Barbera is obviously the main performer here, but the Malvasia di Casorzo grape has received some good attention through its newly established appellation. In 1897, the great grandfather of Ermanno Accornero purchased the Ca’ Cima farm and laid the foundation for the ongoing winemaking tradition. Thus we do not find overwhelming technology in the Accornero cellar, but a solid winemaking experience from many vintages stored in the collective family memory. A Grignolino is produced that combines the best of traditional winemaking, with the improvements of clean, modern cellar work.
