Overview

Souced from vines grown on clay-chalk soils around Alba, and the neighbouring villages that form the Langhe plain and part of Roero. Guyot-trained with a vine density of 3,500 vines per hectare. There is a green harvest in May and July. No irrigation is used. Grapes are hand harvested in the middle of September. The Barbera grapes are sorted and selected, crushed softly and the stalks separated. The must is piped into steel tanks where it is fermented at a temperature of about 27 degrees for 10 days. Production continues with a lighter fermentation until the consumption of sugars is complete. The wine then spends around 6/8 months in steel tanks before bottling. This allows the wine to settle, yet retain vibrant fruit character.

Winery Tasting Notes

Bright red, with fruity raspberry and bilberry aromas in the nose; after some years it gets tobacco smells . Fresh and well-balanced in the mouth, with a nice, harmonic, rich flavour.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Our family has got a passion: wine.

It started in 1930s when Giuseppe, named Pin, bought vineyards and farmhouses around Langhe and began delivering his wine in the valleys around Cuneo and in Liguria, using his wagon with horse.

In the sixties Aldo, still very young, begins working with his father, side by side, in the cellar and in deliveries, creating working relationships and friendship that continue still today.

In the 80s Gianfranca and Luigi, Aldo’s wife and brother, entered in the company.

Continuing on this road, new partnerships are established and our wines also gain foreign markets, from the United States to Japan, from Canada to China to all over Europe.

Today Aldo, Gianfranca and their daughters, Luisa and Paola, together with capable group of people, continue with passion this tradition, focusing on the quality of the product, the protection of the land and the desire to continue a family history started many years ago.
