Twenty-fourth page of my journal. Let me tell you about our April: between Febo and Negus and the expansion of Cru Campiani Est. You are my cellar. Thank you!
In the cellar: opening of semi-carbonic maceration tanksThe opening phase of the tanks for the semi-carbonic maceration of Febo and Negus began in April. After a long semi-carbonic maceration in closed barrels of the whole bunches, lasting six and a half months, the Febo and Negus wines are coming to life, which will now proceed with a 10-month rest in tonneaux before being bottled.
Still very few places for cellar visits and June Rarities. See you in the cellar, book here https://nicolagatta.com/it/bookables
In the vineyard: expansion of Cru Campiani EstAs I had anticipated in recent months, the expansion of the Cru Campiani Est is underway in the vineyard, which I can finally say is on the right path towards completion: we have already started with the planting of the Pinot Noir rooted cuttings and with the positioning poles to give structure to the vineyard.
This extension of Cru Campiani Est is an ongoing project that will bear fruit in the next 5-10 years, with the aim of communicating more and more what Pinot Noir is able to express at this exposure and with this specific terroir.
ME.GA. Drinkers Event in RomeFirst trip away from home successfully completed.
How nice it was to see each other and share laughter and glasses? We chatted and explored some taboo topics of artisanal wine. Wine creates bonds that go beyond miles apart.
See you in Gussago or, who knows, around Italy.
