Rocche dei Manzoni was founded by Valentino Migliorini in 1974. The winery is located in the small enclave of Manzoni, in Monforte d'Alba. The buildings that make up the complex fit perfectly into the beautiful hilly landscape of the Langhe. A place where art, culture and music come together and create a unique opportunity to explore the great vintages that the Langhe has to offer.
The production philosophy is based upon a desire to intervene as little as possible in the wine cellar operations. However, this does not mean that they do not have their own style. Rocche dei Manzoni has always been faithful to its core processes and these are based on the use of new small oak barrels for red wines. Over the years Rodolfo has learned how to properly blend wood to wine and this led him to introduce the use of egg-shaped concrete wine tanks in 2008. Thanks to these, the winery has managed to find the keystone to producing wines that are even more elegant and silky smooth.
Big 'd Big is sourced from various vineyards belonging to Podere Rocche dei Manzoni all located in Monforte d'Alba with southern exposure, cultivated with Nebbiolo da Barolo and Barbera. The calcareous-sandy soil yields wines with great structure and exceptional roundness, spicy aromas and great concentration.
100% Nebbiolo for Barolo fermented at controlled temperature for about 21 days in contact with the skins. The wine is aged in wood and then in cement. After bottling, further refining in bottle prior to market release.
