Antichi Vigneti di Cantalupo Rose Nebbiolo Il Mimo 2009

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The color is gorgeous red rose with forest floor, cranberry and chalk dust on the nose. The palate is smooth and almost a little sweet with strawberry fruit and a hint of citrus. Very enjoyable and thirst quenching. I will buy more.

Antichi Vigneti di Cantalupo is situated in Ghemme, in the upper part of Piedmont, an area which for over two thousand years has had a vocation for wine making. The company is owned by the Arlunno family and today covers a total area of over 100 hectares, of which 34 are covered in vineyards divided into different areas: Breclema, Carella, Livelli, Valera, Baraggiola, Rossini, Roccolo della Valle del tordo and Ronco di San Pietro situated between 250 and 300 metres above sea level and facing south, south-east. The morainic, alluvial hills today covered by vineyards were formed in ancient times as the great Monte Rosa glacier receded. The soil is rich in easily fragmented pebbles providing the vines with a quantity of minerals as well as microelements which help to give the wines their organoleptic features. Cantalupo production can be identified mainly with the Nebbiolo vine species (80% of the area covered in vines) locally known as Spanna, Pliny’s uva spinea. However the native Vespolina and Uva Rara are also valorised, as is Greco blended with Arneis and Chardonnay. All the main activities connected with cultivation (pruning, tying down, leaf stripping, thinning out of bunches) are done manually. Harvesting too is performed by hand at different times for each plot and each type of vine species so as to guarantee the perfect degree of ripeness of the grapes. The wines are aged both in traditional Slavonian oak barrels and in small French oak casks kept in the picturesque terraced cellar cut into the hillside. The character of Cantalupo wines has been perfected over the years through continual research and innovation in tune with the company’s culture, history and accumulated technical experience.
