Gramolere

A story that
begins in 1966

in Monforte d’Alba

The name of the company, which correspond to the toponym of the location, it’s said to come from an event which dates back to the XIX century, when a group of paesants bought these lands.

At the time the soil was still uncultivated and while they were tilling and plowing it, they faced many difficulties, mainly due to the presence of large number of rocks and graminia (garmin, which is a highly resistant and coriaceous weed).

At some point one of the peasants, throwing away his hoe, exasperated by the fatigue exclaimed: “Ei sun mac gramun e père!”, which means, roughly translated from the piedmontese language of the time, “There are only garmin and rocks”.

From the mixing and distortion of the two words “gramun e père” is born the term “Gramurere”, later italianized in “Gramolere”.

The Wines

The traditional red wines they produce are genuine and authentic

In the cellar Claudio works according to tradition and his wines prove it.

Soft pressing, submerged cap fermentation with frequent pumping over and racking to keep the wine as clean as possible.

The Dolcetto d’Alba is aged in stainless steel or cement tanks, while Barolo and Barbera d’Alba age in large oak barrels.

The Barolo of Monforte

That of Monforte is certainly a terroir of the highest vocation.

The Barolo produced by Gramolere is garnet red in color, with a characteristic, ethereal and intense aroma. In the mouth it is dry, austere, but still harmonious and velvety.

It is a very persistent and long-aging wine that tends to improve in color, aroma and taste over time.
