Merendasinoira was born out of the ambition of three young friends who wanted to share their love for their local area.
Three young friends who grew up in the heart of the Langhe, raised on tajarin made by their grandmothers and homemade red wine, two glasses of which would stain your lips an intense violet.
Our grandparents loved making wine, and this love was passed down to us. So, after completing our diplomas in viticulture and oenology, we decided to make winemaking our profession.
The time we have spent among these rolling hills, working in the vines, following the rhythm of the sun, the intense days of harvest and the loving and intimate familial environment, have forged an unbreakable bond between our souls and the territory of the Langhe.
It was this bond which gave birth to the idea of promoting the potential of our territory, focusing as much as possible on an oenogastronomic experience that respects the local traditions and the DNA of our elders.
We want to share the conviviality of the people of the Langhe; simple, genuine people, always happy to gather around a table and create an atmosphere of festivity.
Kidì is a word we made up but not randomly. The sound of it recalls a specific word from our Piedmontese dialect which means “looked after” and it’s exactly what we do with our Barolo.
We follow religiously every step of the production since we are aware that the land gives us an incredible fruit but that only man can turn it into one of the noblest wine on heart.
Knowing this, our work in the vineyard is meticulous and frequent and each row is neatly combed and grassy. It’s exactly how our grandfathers thought us to do it.
The vinification follows the tradition with the must being in contact with the skins for about 25/30 days. We use the “submerged cap maceration” technique to increase the days of maceration, passed the alcoholic fermentation, and to optimise the extraction of phenolic compounds.
The wine then ages in traditional large Slavonian oak casks ( 10 hl ) for about 36 months.
The bouquet of our Barolo is impressively complex with long lasting, fine and mature tannins which give to the wine an impressive silky texture.
- COLOUR: light ruby with garnet and orange hues.
- AROMA: intense, complex and balsamic.
- TASTE: full, robust, velvety and long lasting.
the big structure of this wine makes it a perfect pairing with all Piedmontese dishes, game, semi-matured and matured cheeses.
