COLLIS BRECLEMAE GHEMME

D.O.C.G.

Grape

Nebbiolo from a selection of the more mature grapes from the slopes of the Breclema vineyard exposed to the sun

Breeding system

Counter espalier with Guyot pruning

Soil characteristics

Hills formed – in interglacial stage – by the Monte Rosa moraine (the second highest mountain in Europe). The soil is very rich in minerals thanks to the considerable crumbling of the rocks due to the age of the moraine

Altitude

280 – 310 metres above sea level

Grape harvest

manual and selective in mid end October

Wine-making

Grapes were destemmed and then pressed keeping the rolls of the destemmer sufficiently distant from each other in order to avoid ill treating the grape as much as possible. After the fermentation at 28-30°C, as from the second day of processing two pressings a day were carried out in order to favour the extraction of the anthocyans and the polymerised tannins from the skins, which give that characteristic velvety, sweet and at the same time austere taste to this wine

Ageing

In Spring it was transferred to oak casks and kept there until the bottling. The bottles were then stored horizontally for a long refinement

Longevity

Over 15 years

Wine tasting

The colour is ruby-garnet red. It has a clinging scent, with hints of liquorice, wild red berries, violets. The taste is particular, delicate and persistent and has an elegant feeling of fullness, made more precious by the soft tannins that harmonise in its vibrant structure

Food combinations

Meat and game dishes, as well as savoury cheeses

Tasting temperature

18 – 20° C. Serve in large goblets, making sure to oxygenate

The name of the wine

The name of this Ghemme “Collis Breclemae” comes from the medieval village of Breclema, strategic stronghold of the counts of Biandrate, at the entrance to Ghemme, near the foothills of the Valsesia. The vineyard lies on the hills surrounding the ancient village destroyed. Parchments dating back to the year 200 mention the property of the vineyards on the hills of Breclema as belonging to the Canons of the Island of San Giulio d’Orta
