Bricco Maiolica Piemonte
Bricco Maiolica is a family owned estate that has been in the family for 4 generations.
Bricco Maiolica is located in the heartland of the dolcetto grape Diano d’Alba and is now run by Beppe Accomo and his wife Claudia Castella. The Bricco Maiolica farm takes its name from the hill that is located.
There are elevations reaching up to 450 meters and the vineyards are located on sloped land and comprised of limestone rich soil providing an ideal location for quality wine production. The annual production for the estate runs around 90k bottles on 21 hectares of land.
The Bricco Maiolica success can be attributed to the attention that they give their vines, their soils and their location’s microclimate. Very low yields for all the varieties of grapes leads to healthy vines and optimum fruit. Though not certified organic they use neither chemical fungicides or mildew killers while natural fertilizers are the norm. All of the wines are made with hand harvested, estate grown grapes.
