Villa Giada Tre Ponti Magnum
Grapes Nebbiolo, Barbera
The exact blend of the Tre Ponti changes according to the vintage, in the early day it was 60% Barbera and now it is likely to be at least 85% Nebbiolo and aged in tonneaux for 12 months. The vineyards are on the Montsarinero hill below Agliano Terme. The harvest is usually in the first half of October for the Nebbiolo, both varieties are hand-picked and fermented separately in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
This vintage is made from Nebbiolo (95%) and Barbera (5%), the ageing was in one 2000 litre botti and a few tonneaux of 500 and 700 litres. Bramble, red currants and violet aromas, firm tannins with a lick of tar and dark cherry and berry fruit. A full and finely balanced Nebbiolo. 14.5%
