Monforte | Piedmont
La Bussia di Monforte d'Alba is not just a small village, but a place immersed in the splendid panorama of the Langhe, one of the sub-areas that first stood out in generating wines of complex and constant organoleptic originality, a particularity recognized by passionate admirers of everything It is in these hills that the Azienda Agricola Silvano Bolmida <rises, where the cultivation of the 5 hectares of vineyards is carried out exclusively by Silvano Bolmida and his parents, with particular attention to the low quantities of grapes for each individual plant. Frequent tillage of the soil ensures not only a matural weeding, but also good oxygenation and organic renewal in the deeper layers. The harvest, which of course is done manually, carefully follows the evolution of the analytical and polyphenolic values of each single portion of the vineyard in order to produce wines where extractive richness mixed with elegance is a concept already present in every single bunch. Long fermentations on the skins ensure the organoleptic completeness of the wines; immediate placing in barriques and tonneau (only to a small extent new) in the presence of the lees helps the polymerization and stabilization of the polyphenolic constituents; bottling in the absence of filtration guarantees total respect for the personality.A long aging in bottle (14 months or more for Barolo), makes the wines arrive on the market already drinkable and it will be the consumer's choice to appreciate the harmonious youth or wait for its complexity in evolution, always having in front of you a wine that represents the identity of a vine, an area, a producer and his family.
