Follow me on the hills, I will tell you about the wine ...

The Langhe, Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba's area: it is here that the wine passionates start their journey through the hills that tell the story of these wines in the south of the Piedmont region. Here the bottle of wine is the reflection of tradition, work and passion for the fruit of the earth.

In our production of DOC and DOCG we present a wine obtained by a patient work on the vineyard, where the vines are left to evolve naturally. Our commitment is to take a healthy and mature grape to our cellar, so the work on the must is perfect. We preserve the characteristics of Dolcetto di Diano, giving our wines its typical bouquet.

The high quality, delicacy and elegance of the Dolcetto's aroma is presented in three versions: Base Dolcetto, Dolcetto di Diano Sori Crava and Dolcetto di Diano Garabei. (see the official map)

The Nebbiolo d'Alba, produced at Diano d'Alba, being so close to Barolo has strong tanins which are softened after the refinement in wood, making it perfect for aging.

The Barbera d'Alba is an elegant wine, refined 12 months in the bottle.
We also produce Langhe Favorita, in our personal version, a little sparkling, with a great acid support which enhances the exotic fruit and apple aroma of this fresh white wine.

Other wines: Rosé from local red grapes, Langhe Nebbiolo young and soft, Barolo Docg and Langhe Doc Arneis.

Big news are coming from our cellar: during the harvest of 2013 we have collected our first Nebbiolo of Barolo grapes. Ravera is the name of an old cru (geographical indication) of the Barolo produced at Novello.

The wise observation of local peasants has passed on generation to generation the knowledge that this area, Ravera, is exceptionally good for the growing of Nebbiolo grapes. The Ravera vineyard has 2 hectares, its vines are 30 years old and it is located between the communities of Novello and Barolo. The soil is untied, composed mainly by white marl, which gives the wine the delicacy of the aroma, the richness of its flavors and its great complexity. The limestone gives structure and elegance to the wine, and an excellent longevity.
