Ter info: Neyret Pugnet Ner d’Ala Picotener Alto Piëmonte, Piedmont Italian wine Carema

Patlù is a new wine in the range. The grapes are 100% Nebbiolo (Picotendro biotype) from vines that average 50 years old and are grown using the ancient ‘pergola caremese’ (’topia’ in local dialect) method in a small and special sub-area of Carema The grapes were harvested by hand in late October and sorted into small boxes of 20 kg.
The grapes were destemmed and pressed as soon as they arrived in the cellar, and the must went into a 10-hl concrete tank for spontaneous alcoholic fermentation. Maceration on the skins lasted until the end of December 2020, after which the wine matured in an old barrel.
From its first days in barrel, and following repeated tastings from a single tonneau, this wine demonstrated a truly distinct personality, a unique bouquet and flavor profile that felt worthy of its own bottling. Only 640 bottles produced!

Carema is a very small area, the vineyards cover a total of barely 16ha … Deborah and Federico have only just started in this highest part of Piedmont, just across the border from Aosta Valley. In this bucolic landscape they manage 1.50 hectares of old vineyards in pergola. These are spread over just 50 different plots, most of which can only be reached on foot or by donkey! Vinification is modern, but with respect for the traditions.
