Together with the hills of Langhe and Roero, the Monferrato Hills represent the heart of viticulture in Piemonte. In the prehistoric age, these hills were part of the Adriatic sea bed, yielding clay and sandy soils, ideal for vine growing.
Here there is an ideal micro-climate. The sun warms the hills during cold winter months, preventing the vines from frost. Gentle breezes keep vineyards fresh and dry after the rain, during the summer months. Temperature differences between night and day also help perfect the ripening of the grapes.
Our vineyards have excellent exposure in the hills surrounding Rocchetta Tanaro, and also within the regional natural park. Cultivated with the highest respect for the environment, they are tended with environmentally-friendly techniques. By reducing yields for each vine (cutting away grapes when they are still green) and carefully handpicking our grapes during harvest, we achieve a higher selection of the bunches, rendering a superior wine.
