Extraordinary
Everyday

Malgrà starts with the letter B.
Might not be the first in class, but the one you want to spend all your afternoons with.

It has the B of Barbera, the main variety of Monferrato, originating from property vineyards and vinified into several single vineyards in the heart of the Nizza DOCG area.

The B of Bubbles, traditional and Martinotti – Charmat methods, bringing the great Piedmontese sparkling wine tradition to everyday tables. And also, the B of BeviciSù, which rediscovers the lively taste of wine in a fun, genuine and authentic way.

Vineyards

Monferrato is wild. It is Piedmont’s far east. Endowed with brazen, heedless beauty. Monferrato does not want to please; it must not seduce you. It is all in one piece, mainly limestone and sandy. It is old. Wise. Cold and dry. The lower Monferrato is actually found in the north, it is where Nizza is produced, which goes with Barbera just like how Barolo goes with Nebbiolo. It is found on the north, because “lower” means that there are no high peaks, that its curves are more gentle, excellent for a drive, allowing for the time to admire the vineyards. As well as those rows of Barbera, which have tamed the surrounding hills, but still leaving room for woods, arable lands and hazelnuts.

The vineyards of Malgrà are mostly located within the municipality of Nizza Monferrato, the center of the Asti Monferrato area. At present, they stretch for about 40 hectares and are mostly clustered around a hilly ridge that represents the heart of the production of Nizza DOCG. The vineyards are mostly planted with Barbera, but there can also be found Moscato, Brachetto and Chardonnay grapes.

Every day, we see the versatility of the Barbera grape first hand, the most common grape variety in the region, brought around the world by Piedmontese migrants when they roam around because it was not possible to survive in Monferrato - one would end up going hungry. The Barbera has been a faithful companion in the fields, even when it was no longer cultivated in the local villages. With its acidity and few tannins. Each vineyard, however close to the others, expresses peculiar characteristics. This is why we have chosen to vinify each lot separately, in order to tell different stories but with one single origin.

Wines

ACCENT ON THE VINEYARD

Wines that come from single vineyards. Different expressions of one story, vintage after vintage and plot after plot.

MORA DI SASSI

Nizza DOCG Riserva

GRAPE: barbera
VINEYARD AREA: 3,50 Ha
MUNICIPALITY: Nizza Monferrato
FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION: 1998

A piece of Nizza’s history, even before the Nizza denomination has been written down in the disciplinary. A land rich in limestone, kissed by the sun all day long.

GAIANA

Nizza DOCG

GRAPE: Barbera
VINEYARD AREA: 5,00 Ha
MUNICIPALITY: Mombaruzzo and Nizza Monferrato
FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION: 1998

In Gaiana, between Mombaruzzo and Nizza Monferrato, once there were the Romans, who have given it its name. And, it is known, the Romans had an eye for the best places.

INNUCE

Piemonte DOC Chardonnay

GRAPE: Chardonnay
VINEYARD AREA: 1,47 Ha
MUNICIPALITY: Mombaruzzo
FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION: 2011

Chardonnay has a long history in these areas, much longer than it might seem. The French – obviously – have brought it in the eighteenth century. This small plot of land is perfect for this grape, the minerality of the soil endowing it with structure and making it suitable for aging in wood.
