Details of wine

Since 1995 it has been a tribute to the sculptor Aligi Sassu (1912-2000), a friend of the family. The label shows the stylised image of the sculpture "Horses in Love", a bronze work of art placed in the cellar: his last work. This Franciacorta has an uncompromising style, dry and pure.

Color

Dorato con riverberi smeraldo.

Smell

Sipario aromatico aperto a profumi di agrumi canditi, pesca gialla, menta, pane appena tostato e torrone in una fusione davvero non comune.

Taste

Incipit gustativo di raro garbo, dato da una struttura sontuosa nelle prime battute, animata poi dalla fisicità fresco-sapida. Concede una persistenza tenace e appagante.

The roots that tie the Majolini Family to its land are deep and start from far away – Ezio Maiolini explains – We must go back to the XVth century, when our family arrives in Ome, establishing itself. The tie with viticulture is born almost immediately and already our last name, borrowed right from an autoctonous grape variety, the one of Majolina, is the witness of this adventure. The tie with our land has brought us great satisfactions! Especially to our father Valentino from whom we have inherited the passion and the love from wine production. It is him who decided, around the end of the 60’s, to renovate the old family winery and to start the cultivation of Ruc di Gnoc, a magnificent high hilled vineyard that still today produces the same named wine. No wonder, then, if me and my brothers have enforced our roots, developing even more the project started by our father. The definitive turnaround took place with the acquisition, at the beginning of the 90’s, of the wonderful area called Campèi. In 1995 the buildings of the new winery started, a reality of 4.000 covered meters, situated in a dominant uncomparable valley. Telling about the development of a winery means giving a great importance to research. The ones who produce a wine of excellence, cannot and do not want to think of development in terms of number, but in terms of quality. From 1981 to today our main goal has been to increment the potential of our vineyards, protect and increment the value of the territory, and optimize the productive procedures in the strict respect of the wine tradition.
