Their small business is a family-run farm that was born in Montà d’Alba in 1928, a small town on the outskirts of the Roero thanks to a family that for generations has handed down its lands and traditions of winemakers from father to son.
The oldest vineyards of the company have been owned by their family since before 1600, while the first documentation of winemaking dates back to 1928.
Their vineyards extend for about 3.4 hectares, consisting of two small vineyards (Prasanin and Bertin) and a large vineyard (Valvun) of 2.3 hectares. Cultivated in counter espalier with pruning, harvesting and other manual operations, they find among the rows the three noblest vines that have made Piedmont wines famous in the world: Barbera, Arneis and the Nebbiolo.
The recently built cellar has a capacity of 780HL, with an average annual production of about 30,000 bottles, and benefits from the latest technologies.
The oenologist, Cristian Taliano, owner of the company, takes care of every single detail of the production process also with the help of the family.
Nebbiolo is one of Italy’s most important red wine varieties made famous by the two production regions of Barolo and Barbaresco in Piedmont, Italy.
Nebbiolo wines are full bodied, translucent and have a delicate smell, but when you taste them you are greeted with robust tannin and high acidity. Find out about Nebbiolo and several regions in Northern Italy that make this fascinating, almost deceptive-tasting wine.
Tasting Nebbiolo wines can be quite an arresting experience because the floral and light red fruit aromas suggest the wine is much lighter than it is. Upon tasting Nebbiolo you will experience leathery, gripping high tannin that seems to clasp the inside of your lips to the front of your teeth. Despite its tannic structure, the wine’s fruity flavors of cherry and raspberries, supported with aromas of rose and anise, always seem to shine through. In cooler years, Nebbiolo gets a bit herbaceous with more sour cranberry fruit, rose hip and leather and red clay minerality.
Nebbiolo is considered Italy’s greatest native grape variety. The wines are extremely ageworthy and some of the top quality red wines in the world.
