BARBARESCO, THE TERROIR MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
Position, orientation, microclimate and tradition: these are the four factors that characterise our vineyards, all of which are in the municipality of Barbaresco (the Barolo vineyard is in the municipality of Novello). Position: the plots are located in the best parts of the hills. Orientation: from south-east to south-west, for maximum exposure to the sun. Microclimate: the combination of natural elements enables us to obtain wines with unique fragrances. The soil yields Barbaresco, Nebbiolo and Barbera characterised by length, finesse and elegance. The Barolo is full-bodied and structured. Thanks to the microclimate influenced by the Tanaro river and the woods adjacent to the vineyards, the Dolcetto and Chardonnay are fresh, long-lived and have a distinct minerality.
Tradition: the cultivation of the vineyards and the soil is governed by respect for the environment. The use of natural fertilisers produced by our cattle breeding and a scrupulous choice of low-impact treatments are just two examples of how we care for nature. Vineyards and cascine (farmsteads), in keeping with the tradition of our land:
