Scrimaglio – Piedmont, Italy
The Scrimaglio winery in Nizza Monferrato, Piedmont, was established in 1920 and celebrates it's centenary this year. The Scrimaglio family’s roots in Piedmont date back to the 17th Century. Their historical importance in the region is so great that an entire area of Monferrato is still known as Regione Scrimaglio.
Renowned for the quality of their Barbera d’Asti, and acknowledged as leaders of the grape's rebirth at the turn of the century, Scrimaglio are credited for the work that has led to the classification of the region's sub-appellation Nizza DOCG which was officially recognised in 2014.
The winery was owned and run by the Scrimaglio family until 2017, when the brand was acquired by Terre da Vino, one of Piedmont’s most important regional cooperatives. The winemaking, under Terre da Vino’s chief winemaker Bruno Cordero, has unequivocally brought the wines back to their former glory and sees them released into the UK for the first time in stylishly understated and elegant new packaging.
Under the guidance of Bruno Cordero and his team, the well exposed microclimates of the vineyards allow the winegrowers to practice low impact farming and work in harmony with nature to produce unquestionably high-quality wines.
