This Red Wine blend-"Mimmo" is dedicated to Domenico Staropoli, a friend of Le Piane winery who contributed for many years to improve the quality standards in the vineyards. The wine can be defined as a "Small Boca".
Nebbiolo grapes also used in Boca DOC are fermented for 30 days on the must in small stainless steel tanks being pushed down the must by hand. This wine goes to age in large Slavonian oak barrels for two years. Meanwhile, Croatina and Vespolina grapes go through a short fermentation (5 days) in open wooden barrels pushing down the must by hand. These wines are aged for one year in Tonneaux de Troncais and one year in large Slavonian oak casks. Then the wines are blended together to create the final Red Wine Blend Mimmo.
The result is a lighter wine that is more approachable and works as a good forerunner to the more complex but also more intense flagship wine "Boca DOC". There is a lovely floral and fruity flavour with a soft elegance and a lasting taste. "Mimmo" does not need to age in the bottle for a long time but matures well over a period of 3 to 6 years.
It has a ruby red colour with garnet reflections and an intense, fresh flavour with the indistinguishable sapidity of the Boca vineyards. It offers persuasive scents of red fruits, citrus, and aromatic herbs such as thyme. Thanks to slow oxidation, it releases hints of earth and undergrowth.
For a full experience, the great aromas and elegance of this wine go well with marinated white meat, tomato-based pasta, grilled vegetable starters, and also Mediterranean-style fish.
