In the Barolo and Barbaresco regions, soil composition, exposure, the age of the vines and climate are factors that influence the personality of every wine produced.
This is the case for all wines, but it is particularly true when it comes to the highly sensitive Nebbiolo grape.
Our vineyards grow in blessed locations. If you come to visit us, you will see that they are tended like gardens so that the vines grow vigorously and in harmony with their surroundings.
The Barolo terroirs are both a blessing and a burden. Even one detail out of place can compromise the end result. This is why we have to be able to read the signals that nature sends us.
After more than a century, we think we can quite safely say that we have learned to recognise them.
Our classic Barolo and Barbaresco wines are the fascinating choral expression of our soils, achieved by vinifying grapes from different vineyards, as was the custom in the past.
However, the complexity of our terroir reaches its highest level of expression in what we can consider the solo voices of the single vineyards: Vigna Rionda, Margheria, Parafada, Parussi and, last but not least, Albesani.
Our Cru wines aim to preserve the unique characteristics of each vineyard, emphasising the richness that comes from the diversity of the terroir.
The changing nature of the environment means that no one terroir ever stays the same but evolves over time. The job of producers like us is to know how to accompany these changes, always maximising the style and personality of the wines.
