Trying to describe Vigna Rionda is a challenge.
Even if we analyse the morphology, chemistry and physics of the soil in detail, we are still unable to fully understand what makes the wines produced here different from any other Barolo, even from their “brothers” from Serralunga. It is no mere coincidence that it is one of the most sought-after and respected Crus in the area. Something happens on this hill…
Vigna Rionda is located in the municipality of Serralunga d’Alba at an altitude of about 330 m above sea level.
A Barolo Vigna Rionda Riserva is reluctant to express itself when young, but as the years go by it gives the most overwhelming sensations. A touch of Langa magic.
