Our wines reflect the true tradition of the Langhe: the objective is to preserve the distinctive and typical characteristics of the grapes they are made from. The many years of history and experience have gifted us a unique style, typical and sustainable. Our production philosophy is based on: Using indigenous yeasts selected in our vineyards; Letting the grape musts ferment in concrete and steel vats; Aging the wines in large oak barrels; Significantly reducing the use of sulfites, over 40% fewer than what is allowed by law. We believe that what is on the outside is also quite important: we use bottles made of as much as 85% of recycled glass while both the labels and boxes carry the FSC logo. This logo guarantees that only recycled materials or materials originating from correctly-managed forests are used in their production.

In 2014 the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato areas became the 50th Italian site to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The very first for viticulture-designate agricultural landscapes. The Langhe are a historic region of Piedmont, positioned between 450 and 800 meters above sea level, in an area that lies between the Tanaro and Bormida rivers, between the provinces of Cuneo and Asti. This land is famous all around the world, not only for its wealth of traditions and typical local products, but also for its rolling landscapes which have been immortalized and celebrated by the words of writers such as Pavese and Fenoglio. Moreover, this is the homeland of Barolo, of the White Truffle of Alba and of the Tonda Gentile hazelnut, just to name a few of the many delicacies of this land. Our vineyards are located in the territories belonging to the municipalities of Serralunga d’Alba, Diano d’Alba, Barolo, Dogliani, Farigliano, Alba, Rodello, and Murinsengo, at altitudes between 200 and 400 meters, on hills with slopes that have, for the most part, regular profiles and rounded crests. The soils, mainly calcareous, have diverse compositions even when being just ten or more meters apart: some are more loose, being composed of almost 50% sand; some are firmer, with a higher content of loam and especially clay. The weather trends throughout the year make the climate a typically continental one, with precipitations occurring mainly in the spring and fall, in a highly variable context, however, which determines the extraordinary diversity between one harvest and another.
