Technical Sheet

Vineyards

Our vineyards are located in three of the most popular countries of the Langhe suited to the production of Barolo wine – Monforte d’Alba, Barolo and Novello. Our vineyards cover about 7 acres facing south and southwest. The composition of the soil, where they are planted our vineyards, is characterized by clay, tuff, sand and silt left by the withdrawal of the Sea Padano about 16 million years ago: the alternation of these layers gives to our wines excellent finesse, structure and elegance. Our wine cellar is located in Monforte d’Alba, which from 2014 is considered Unesco patrimony.
