Description

Valpolcevera is a small valley between the hills surrounding Genoa; Bruzzone’s vineyards amount to less than one hectare across the areas of Coronata, Fegino, Morego, Serra Riccò and Sant'Olcese.

The name ‘Treipaexi’ or ’Treipaesi’ refers to the three types of grapes and the three hamlets where historic vineyards were once located. This wine comes from the vinification of three red grapes entirely cultivated in Valpolcevera. The label The label, designed in collaboration with the celebrated Genovese artist Francesco Musante,  depicts a typical Ligurian sea village with Bruzzone’s legendary Fiat 600 on the quayside.

Wines of the Valpolcevera discipline are not typically found outside Liguria, as the total production area is less than two hectares. Coronata is a subzone of the tiny Valpolcevera discipline, making this wine extremely rare.

The grapes are collected in crates and pressing takes place in the vineyard with mobile equipment, and the must is left on the skins for 4-5 days. The must is then transported to Bruzzone’s cellar in Genoa Bolzaneto and deposited into tanks for cold clarification. Grapes are co-fermented with solely indigenous yeasts at controlled temperature (20-22°C) for 15 to 20 days. Rests in stainless steel for six months before bottling.

A nose offering aromas of fresh berries, cherry and a slight herbal note. The taste is refreshing and lively, with balanced acidity and plenty of juicy red fresh fruit flavour.

Serve with pasta, rice with baked poultry, roasted duck or rabbit; and also matches perfectly with cured meats

Andrea Bruzzone's creativity has a foundation in a passion for family, good drinking and good food. In 1991 Andrea founded his Enoteca in Genoa Bolzaneto, where he sells many sought-after bottles, covering not only Italy, but also France and elsewhere; plus a large selection of spirits and liqueurs.

Bruzzone’s Enoteca is also a winery with space dedicated to tanks and casks where the must rests before bottling.

Bruzzone is one of the very few to carry on the tradition of Coronata, where rather than cultivating his own vineyards he relies on 6 farmers situated around Genoa (Fegino and Morego), Serra Riccò and Sant'Olcese to supply the fruit. The vineyards amount to less than one hectare in total, from which Bianchetta, Vermentino, and Coronata grapes (bianchetta, bosco, rollo and vermentino), and ciliegiolo, dolcetto and barbera are cultivated.
