"Paolo Veglio founded Cascina Roccalini in 2003 after having farmed
Nebbiolo for nearly a decade and selling the fruit to some of the
most well known wineries in Piemonte. His great-grandfather
bought the property in 1920 for the equivalent of 250 Euros. The
winery doesn't carry any certifications, but Paolo follows organic
and biodynamic practices. Paolo knew from a young age that he
wanted to grow grapes and make wine. He began apprenticing with
farmers and winemakers at the age of 14. It was then that he
discovered "I didn't want to sit behind a desk, I wanted to work the
fields."

VINEYARD
The Roccalini vineyard has plantings going back as far as 1961. It
sits at a Southwestern exposure on a hill overlooking the Tanaro
River at 1,000 ft elevation. The soil is a combination of clay and
marl. Paolo believes the freshness of his wines comes from the
clay soils. The grapes for the Langhe Nebbiolo come from the
youngest plantings. Paolo is the only one farming grapes at this
site and he no longer sells any of his fruit.

WINEMAKING
While Paolo handles the farming himself, his mother assists him in
the cellar. The Nebbiolo ferments spontaneously in concrete tanks.
They do not punch down the wines, they prefer to use the
traditional steccatura method to keep the cap submerged. This
allows for a slower, longer maceration and more depth of flavor.
The wines are aged for 8 months in Slavonian oak and bottled
unfined and unfiltered." - Importer Note
