And Technology In Vineyards||Organic
clones' of the same variety, that have complementary phenotype
characters, are transplanted after a long and accurate selection,
in order to get ideal agronomic and oenological types.|
It is fundamental to select only high quality vines to get
greater value grapes and wines: this result can be obtained
only by crossing different peculiarities of different clones.
The cru Garnì is a perfect example of this procedure:
during the reimplanation of 1995, three different clones
of Dolcetto were planted (precisely CVT CN 22 clone who
bears consistend medium size grapes that make a very intense
ruby red wine with slight violet reflexes and high alcoholic
strenght; CVT AL 275 clone who bears small grapes thath
make a good bodied wine of intense and fruited aroma; CVT
8 clone who bears medium to big size grapes that make an
intense and harmoniuous wine with a complex and elegant
bouquet and an excellent balance between alcohol and acids).
Every clone generates grapes that have particular characters:
they will all contribute to produce a very defined quality
wine and a masterly union nof these different types will
create a real complete wine. Nowadays the selection phase
is considered the fundamental step of the whole vine-growind
process and the frontier of rurther developments in oenology.
important development sector in Giribaldi firm is the production
of organic wine. The project has started in 2001 and will
give its first result in 2004 vintage. The awareness about
ecology and health matters and a market which is more and
more concerned about the use of chemical products in agriculture
and food industry, have given a big input to this new anterprise|
In Italy organic and biologic experiments in wine production
were started, more than forty years ago, by a small group
of "philosopher-farmes" and the result of their
experience were acknowledged and regulated by the Europena
Community only in 1991, Nowdays the "consumers"
are becoming more and more "tasters" and their
requests and needs are oriented towards a greater attention
on "all" quality standards of wine. Foreign markete,
that is even more demanding about bio guarantees, is transforming
a narrow market in a great proportions business reality.
Giribald firm, whose 70% of products are exported in different
countries all over the planet, has mad the purpose to increase
the efforts in this direction and to improve its already
topmost quality standards, offering a wide range of organic
wines who are bound to become the real "ambassadors"
of Langhe culture all over the worlds.
