Overview

This wine has been always and traditionally produced by our Family from grapes coming from different regions. This is the classic “formula” used by the ancient Barolo families to produce a wine which embraces and combines each of the unique characteristics of the different vineyards and terroirs of the Barolo area. Our family-owned vineyards in Serralunga d’Alba (Ornato, Collaretto and Lirano), Grinzane Cavour (Gustava and Carzello), La Morra (Roncaglie), Novello (Ravera) and, since the 2015 vintage our recently acquired vineyard in Monforte (Mosconi).
