Winemaking Notes: The Nebbiolo grape is the foundation for Le Pianelle's flagship red wine. The grapes are harvested exclusively by hand, with each grape variety and vineyard being processed individually. Maceration and fermentation occurs in open Grenier oak vats. The wine matures for 18 months in a combination of used barrels in 20 hectoliters and 27 hectoliters (large Stockinger). The Bramaterra is aged in bottle for an additional 24 months before being released to the market.

    The 2016 Bramaterra is drop-dead gorgeous. Utterly captivating in its aromatics and inner sweetness, the 2016 is insanely beautiful. Sweet red cherry, candy, iron, graphite, rose petal and blood orange are some of the many notes that come alive with a bit of aeration. I tasted the 2016 from two care lots, separately, and then in a hypothetical blend. It is a hugely promising wine.

    The 2016 Bramaterra is fabulous. Deep and exquisitely layered, the 2016 possesses stunning depth and textural nuance to burn. Rose petal, lavender, red/purplish fruit, cedar, tobacco and licorice all build in the glass. The 2016 is a wine of power, structure and dimension.
