Marco Bonfante Imma Langhe Nebbiolo 2017

 

IMMA is the wine that Marco dedicated to his first son, Manuele, who joined the Bonfante family in 2015. “IMMA” is simply the abbreviation of the Jewish name from which it derives, “Immanuel”.

GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Nebbiolo

VINEYARD: The soil is rich of calcareous clay marl and sand on the south and south-east, which allows to obtain a very high quality.
Training system: Guyot
Vineyard density: 5200 plants per hectare
Harvest: First half of October
Yield per hectare: 55hl/Ha

WINEMAKING: During the vinification we try to exalt the characteristics of Nebbiolo grapes and to have the maximum extraction of noble components: we obtain that with a prolonged maceration and with particular attention to fermentation temperatures (max. 28°C) to protect the taste and olfactory freshness. The grapes get destalked and soft-pressed. To the alcoholic fermentation, which lasts 10/12 days, it follows a further maceration on the skins for 8/10 days. After that, IMMA is aged for 12 months in big French oak barrels.

TASTING: In the glass IMMA shows a clear ruby red. The aromas are complex, with notes of plum, spices, red berries and violet. On the palate it is frank, tasty, with important tannins well integrated in the structure of the wine. It is long and persistent with a fruity and spiced final. It needs some years in the bottle to express all its potential.

Service temperature: 16°-18°(60°F-64°F)
Food pairing: We recommend this Langhe Nebbiolo with typical dishes like the piedmontese “finanziera”, risotto with fondue and white truffle, meat dishes like “bollito”, mushroom “faraona”, rabbit with peppers and medium ripened cheeses.

A few words about us
Following their father’s loss and the consequent division of his winery, Marco and his sister Micaela founded the winery Marco Bonfante srl in 2000. “Our family produces wines in Piedmont, precisely in Nizza Monferrato since 8 generations, so much time that the hill which saw our ancestors grow up, took the name Bonfante.” Marco is the winemaker and he looks after the production and the sales, while Micaela takes care of the administration of the company.


Winery
“First of all I produce wines that reflect my taste: if I don’t like a wine, it is very difficult for me to sell it. At the moment the hectares of vineyards that we follow directly are 23 and to complete our production we buy some selected grapes, too.
Our staff takes care of the thinning (green harvest), reducing the production per plant to improve the quality of the grapes.
This work of selection allows us to produce and to offer our customers an assortment of the most important appellations of southern Piedmont.”
