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 2015 Bramaterra is dark, rich and enveloping, with more body than these wines tend to show, a result of a warm growing season. Today, the aromatics are a bit muted, but that should not be a huge issue in a few years' time. The 2015 is not quite as alluring as it was from barrel last year, but I expect it will show that quality once again with a bit more time in bottle. It's a gorgeous wine in the making.
