Grown in a highly distinctive region known as the Roero, the Ceretto family's objective is to improve the varietal recognition of Arneis on the world stage. Blange8 combines organic practices in the vineyard with a modern style of winemaking. Considered a still white wine, Blange8 is made in a unique manner. A natural level of dissolved CO2 is left in the wine upon bottling to present a light spritz upon opening. This "spritz" of CO2 is endogenous, being produced naturally by the yeast during the alcoholic fermentation. By cooling the tanks to 0 degrees, fermentation is stopped, a slight pressure (below 0.5 bar) is retained and 4-5 grams of residual sugar is left per liter.
The quest of the brothers Bruno and Marcello Ceretto was to select vineyards in the most valuable positions historically. This idea came about during a trip to Burgundy, and would prove the family's insight and see their Barolo and Barbaresco wines among the most popular in the world. A revolution at the time, for a territory in which the concept of cru was totally unknown, but, above all, a brilliant idea. The most difficult challenge the brothers faced was convincing their father who, as was typical at the time, purchased grapes for the wines he vinified. "You are undertaking a difficult journey, the land has never made anybody rich," he warned, but Bruno and Marcello were convinced about the potential of the land and stubbornly replied, "We believe in the land 100%, the winery is obviously important, but great wines are made with great grapes." And so, they began dreaming of labels bearing the name of the vineyard and also its image: "so whoever drinks that wine can see the vineyard from which it has originated. The vineyard is history, the names of the hills remain, unchanged over time, enhancing the quality and credibility of the wines produced here. You can search out, visit and physically touch a vineyard. always." In 1986, Wine Spectator, perhaps the most influential American magazine in the world of wine, puts the two Langhe brothers on the cover calling them the Barolo Brothers. Bruno and Marcello were less than 50 years old, but they were not overwhelmed by what was an official consecration, to which all aspire, but few can obtain. Even today, they have remained true to themselves, they have not stopped dreaming and fighting for their righteous goal. Meanwhile, the Langa has grown with them and with those who, like them, puts their name to the land where they were born and accompanied them throughout their lives.
