Vintage

Grape: Nebbiolo 100%.
ABV: 13%.
Yearly production: 5000 bottles.

Colour: Bright ruby-red.

Aroma: Fruity aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry mixed with ethereal and spicy fragrances of vanilla and cinnamon.

Taste: Medium body, dry with remarkable structure and light acidity.

Behind the label: The Nebbiolo grape reminded the owner of the winter morning frost, “brina” in Italian, and so to Dante’s devil named Calcabrina which literally means frost rider. Unfortunately, the name was already copyrighted so they went from “brina” to “bruma”, which has a similar meaning, and then made it up in “Calcabrume”.

Producer: Glicine, Marcorino, Curra, are names that are reminiscent of this small winery that took roots in 1980, named “del Glicine” as a tribute to a century-old wisteria located in the garden. They began producing for enjoyment in small quantities with both successes and disappointment. Slowly the past time grew into business facilitated by the existing unique 17th century cellar, which is a great example of Piedmontese Baroque kept in perfect condition. The silence, the darkness, the moistness, and the coolness are ideal for the storage and aging wines.
