Rocche dei ManzoniAll products from this vendor
The Rocche dei Manzoni winery is located in Mancone Soprani and is part of the Monforte d'Albas commune. Created in the 18th century, it resumed its activities in 1974, when the old buildings and famous vineyards were acquired by Valentino and Jolanda Migliorini. Valentino fell head over heels in love with Piedmont on a trip to procure fine red wines for his Michelin-starred restaurant in the Emilia-Romagna region. Always following the spirit of fashion, the Francophile returned to Barolo with the skills of a winemaker, which he inherited from his father. Soon Valentino's passion for the Nebbiolo grapes surpassed his loyalty to the cuisine of the Emilia-Romagna region: he left the restaurant that brought him fame to devote his life to grapes, wine and daring experiments in wine production.
ChardonnayAll products from this varietal
Fresh chardonnay shows bright fruity profile and strong body. Chardonnay wines usually have expressed aromatic complexity and usually it happens due to winemaking techniques (particularly the use of oak promote notes of vanilla, smoke and hints of spices) rather than the variety's intrinsic qualities. Also, this variety can develop cream, yeast and brioche bread notes. Because of this high level of winemaker influence, Chardonnay has become famous as the "winemaker's wine".
The Langhe is a mountainous region of Piedmont located east of the Tanaro River and south of the capital of Alba. Lange has a long history of winemaking, and many of the wines produced here use traditional, well-established grape varieties such as Arneis and Vermentino for white wines, and Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Freisa for reds. Since its official launch in November 1994, Langhe DOC has built a significant reputation for innovative viticulture. The Langhe wine region, known as the 'quality triangle', is made up of a unique combination of climate, soil and local varieties that create a rich wine range. Also, one cannot fail to note the passion and obsession of local producers who fully devote their whole life to serving their land.
Translated from Italian Piemonte means ''the foot of the mountain" which is evident by the location of the region - it rests near the Alps which protect the region from cold winds. Nebbiolo is the king of grapes here - this exceptional variety is ideal for the production of wines with a high potential for aging like, for example, the world-famous fruity and balanced Barolo and Barbaresco.
