Rosso Novarese, “Maggiorina”
“Maggiorina,” a somewhat lighter wine, is produced from grapes grown in old “Maggiorina” vineyards (25 different small fields). These fields are planted mixing twelve different varieties of grapes (mostly Nebbiolo and Croatina but even some white varietals) to give a real field blend. The wine is released after one year of aging in stainless steel tanks and, as well as the characteristic mineral and spicy taste, it also has hints of fresh fruits. This is a wine that should be enjoyed within the first two years after harvest.
