Three siblings, Filippo, Laura, and Federica, decide to gather everything that has been passed down to them by their parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents: respect for the land, that of Langhe, the love for a relentless work, the vineyard’s techniques respecting the territory.
In the ’70s, the company mainly marketed grapes, and winemaking was done exclusively for friends. From this passion and careful selection of grapes coming only from native vines. Their wines are born, in particular, Barolo DOCG, Langhe DOC Nebbiolo, Langhe DOC Rosato and Barbera d’Alba DOC.
Winemaking focuses on the purity of each wine, preserving the fruity aromas without altering their peculiarities, so that the characteristics of the Langhe land can be perceived.
Since 2014, the winery has been part of the Langhe area, which has become a UNESCO heritage site.
Barbera d’Alba is an Italian red wine produced in the Piedmont region, specifically in the Langhe area. It is mainly made using the Barbera grape, a native variety highly regarded for its vibrant acidity and rich fruity aromas.
At sight, Barbera d’Alba displays a bright ruby red color, which can sometimes lean towards purple in younger wines. On the nose, it reveals refined fruity aromas, with prominent notes of cherries, ripe plums, and raspberries, accompanied by hints of black fruit and spices.
On the palate, the wine exhibits a pleasant acidity that provides a fresh and lively tasting experience. The fruity flavours are intense and well-balanced, with lingering impressions of red and black fruits. Occasionally, subtle hints of liquorice, vanilla, or wood from oak aging may be detected.
Barbera d’Alba is generally a versatile wine suitable for various occasions. It pairs wonderfully with meat dishes, aged cheeses, and Italian cuisine such as pasta with ragù or truffle-infused tagliatelle. It is appreciated for its ability to offer a harmonious balance between acidity and body, making it an excellent choice for both young consumption and after a period of bottle aging.
