Brut Rosé 90 points Vinous

Brut Rosé awarded with 90 Vinous points ! 

The Brut Rosé Giovanni Galliano 2018, from the wineproducer Borgo Maragliano in Piemonte, received 90 points from Vinous. 

“A burst of sweet smoke gives way to fresh mint, ginger and white strawberries as the 2018th Brut Rosé Giovanni Galliano comes to life in the glass. It washes accross the palate with a silken bead of fine bubbles under an air of rosy florals, coming accross as savory and mineral in style, with a reverberation of bright acidity. The Giovanni Galliano, a varietal Pinot Noir, finishes with a salty flourish and a slightly bitter twang that leaves the mouth watering for more. “(disgorged: October, 2021) – Eric Guido

Vinous, May 2022 

How this wine is produced:

Upon arrival in the cellar, the Pinot Noir grapes are left to macerate for about five to eight hours at a temperature of 7-8 °C. This is followed by soft pressing to favour the extraction of the must which, characterised by a pretty pink colour, begins its first alcoholic fermentation. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine is drawn off the lees and left at mature in stainless steel tanks for about eight months. In the month of April of the year after harvest, the resulting Pinot Noir is bottled and, after dosage and the immediate addition of yeast, undergoes second fermentation. At the end of this process, which creates the characteristic foam, the wine continues to mature on lees for about 36 months. 

Borgo Maragliano: 

Borgo Maragliano covers an area of in total 25 hectares of vineyards. 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.

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.

The wines are the result of a 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.
