Overview

The Nebbiolo vineyards cultivated around the municipality of Barolo are situated at a height of 280-380 metres above sea level. These soils are rich of grey sandy silt clay and sometimes bluish in colour. These inter-woven lands have a very good drainage which helps to sustain the vegetative activity of Nebbiolo.
