Borgo Maragliano receives 5 Grappoli from Bibenda

Bibenda, the Italian Sommelier Foundation:

Borgo Maragliano’s Brut Nature Cuvée Germana Beltrame has received the 5 grappoli (grapes). This is the highest award  from Bibenda, the Italian Sommelier Foundation.

Brut Nature Cuvée Germana Beltrame:

The Brut Nature, a high quality sparkling wine made with traditional method is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes.  Fermentation takes place in steel tanks.

A Brut Nature obtained from the combination of young and pungent vintages.  With older, much more evolved vintages, capable of honoring and respecting the Chardonnay cultivar.

This Brut perfectly combines with shellfish, raw fish, soups, and fresh cheeses but this high quality sparkling wine is also perfect on its own.

The delicious entry makes it very seductive and harmonious as it lingers on the palate. The structured bouquet features sensations of fruit, aromatic herbs and honey, which bring out the true nature of the Chardonnay grape.

The remarkable flavour expresses the true characteristics of a great grape grown in a very hostile terroir. 

Borgo Maragliano:

Borgo Maragliano sits 450 metres above sea level, in the heart of Loazzolo on a natural terrace in the Langhe hills. In Springtime a gentle wind called the Marin blows in from the sea and crosses Loazzolo. This ‘magical’ breeze, is most welcome as it favours the maturation and the perfume of the grapes.

Borgo Maragliano covers an area of 25 hectares of vineyards and the wine is vinified, bottled and packed by members of the Galliano family who preserve a great respect for tradition but at the same time employ the most modern vinification techniques, methods and equipment.

Their wines are the result of careful and meticulous labour from vines of Moscato, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. They represent the highest expression of this distinctive territory and of its soil.
