Viticulture

Harvest takes place in the first half of October. Grapes are hand-picked and placed in 20 kg crates. 100% Nebbiolo, guyot pruning, elevation of 300m. All wines from Tibaldi are produced from organically grown grapes which are Certified Organic vineyards through certifier Valoritalia.

Soil

Mixed soil, from Bricco Delle Passere vineyard, with southeast exposure.

Vinification

Once in the cellar the grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed. The must is fermented in steel tanks in contact with the skins at a constant temperature between 26° and 28° C. Numerous pump-overs maximize color extraction and tannin. After the first decantation, malolactic fermentation begins.

Aging

The wine matures ‘sur lie’ in steel tanks, in order to obtain longevity, structure and aroma. It ages in steel tanks for 10 months and than 3 months in bottles before being placed on the market.
