Barolo Vigne Dei Fantina.

Simply, an outstanding Barolo. The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine are grown at a high altitude with maceration of up to 50 days. This helps refine the fierce tannins, and produces a fantastic wine which represents, as all great wines do, the identity of the vineyard, the vintage and the producer to a high level of perfection. Very attractive nose with subtle layers of cherries and violets. Full bodied and velvety, sweet and ripe on the palate.

Intensity Light bodied Full bodied
Acidity Low High
Style Dry Sweet
Silvano Bolmida

Silvano Bolmida is one of the new breed in Monforte. Now almost forty years old, he worked for ten years as an enologist for another winery in Barolo before taking over the business founded by his father and mother, and now seeks to improve on what was already a standard.

The estate is relatively small and production was never big to begin with. One major decision by Silvano Bolmida was to drastically reduce yields by performing a green harvest in June, and to use organic winegrowing practices in the vineyards, without the need for pesticides or chemical fertilizers. At harvest time the grapes are given a fairly long skin contact, and then are aged in cask (tonneaux) or in barriques, on the lees, for over a year prior to bottling.

While Silvano spent ten years working with a big Barolo producer, on returning to the family estate, he was determined to make wine which reflected the richness and particular compostion of his own soil. Great attention to viticultural details in caring for the leaves and shoots, keeping yields low, and frequent tillage, ensures the production of wines whose flavour richness and elegance are characteristics already present in each bunch of grapes.

Silvano Bolmida

The hills of the Langhe, where Silvano Bolmida's vineyards are located, formed the floor of an ancient sea 15 Million years ago. Because of this ancient maritime influence, the sandy soils where he grows the grapes for his Barbera and Barolo wines are studded with fossilized remnants of sea creatures contributing a mineral depth to the wines.
