About the Bricco San Biagio Vineyard:
A vineyard in the famed commune of La Morra, a historic cru belonging to the Barolo appellation. It is a steep, trapeze-shaped plot, with excellent orientation to the South-East – South – South-West. The land, composed of whitish marl and blue tufa, looser and more sandy compared with other areas, yields a Barolo that is ready to drink, of a medium structure, quite soft and perfumed. The particular shape of the vineyard and the steepness of the terrain require extreme care when working on the terraces to avoid hydro-geological erosion.
Grimaldi cultivate about thirty hectares of vineyards between the Langhe and Roero, in some of the best plots in the hills recognised by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.
"Our family live and work in close contact with the vines. We have therefore chosen to pursue a sustainable way of farming in which humans, vines and the environment can live in close harmony, protecting the natural resources at our disposal, a heritage to bequeath, as intact as possible, to future generations"
- Luigino Grimaldi, 3rd generation Grimaldi wine producer.
