Majolini winery’s property extends over the Moraine hills of Ome municipality: a special village for its characteristic geology based on many layers of limestone. Located in a protected cove on the foothills of Mount Brione (800 meters), it is surrounded by hills and privileged with a microclimate unique in Franciacorta.
Grapes of Majolini Franciacorta grow far from the cobbled streets in a place bordered by forests and footpaths: 24 hectares spread over more than 24 plots of land with various climate and different geological origin from each other. Frichetto is the Pinot Noir plot of land situated at the highest altitude in Franciacorta, at about 500 meters above sea level, in an area called Ruc di Gnoc.
A feature common to all these vineyards is the calcareous soil. In some places the stone emerges above the surface: it is a pure white limestone, Medolo, scientifically defined limestone maiolica, hence the last name Maiolini strictly connected to this land. Medolo gives minerality and structure to Franciacorta wines.
