Overview of the Wine
The history of Brigatti’s estate began in the early 1900s when Alessandro Brigatti, Francesco’s grandfather, the current proprietor, started to plant some vines to complement the cultivation of cereals.
The great passion for wine was the driver that fostered Alessandro to start searching for a suitable plot of land to plant his own vineyard. During his quest he came across a gently rolling hill, exposed to the south and with a soil rich in clay. In such an idyllic place, Alessandro began to cultivate Nebbiolo, Vespolina and Uva Rara, undeniably the three most representative red grape varietals of the Colline Novaresi, the hills in the Novara province where those grapes are blended to make Mötziflon, the wine named after the vineyard. Back then, Mötziflon used to be sold in the neighbouring towns and carried in small wooden casks of seven “brente” capacity (“Brenta” is an ancient unit of measurement equating to 50 litres).

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This peculiar, single-varietal red comes from the vinification of the best bunches of Vespolina grapes from our vineyards.
Vespolina is the indigenous grape variety of Alto Piemonte by definition, the wine we make out of it I s deep ruby with violet reflections when young. Floral and red berries are the main aromas and flavours that complement the typical spicy note.
