Our products

Product category: Piemont

Barolo Docg

Tasting characteristics
Appearance: garnet red colour with variable intensity depending on the vintage.

Bouquet: the grapes come from different subzones in Serralunga and this gives them a broad and variable spectrum of perfumes, ranging from tempting spicy notes to those of a sweeter, floral and fruity nature.

Flavour: a variety of sensations, with a full-bodied, classic and well structured wine which ages well and perfectly represents the important character of our land.

It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C.

It achieves its best expression when served with red meats, particularly game, and with dishes dressed with truffle. It is also excellent with fresh egg pasta and meat sauce, and with risotto, as well as medium-mature cow’s milk and goat’s milk cheeses.

Langhe Doc Chardonnay

Tasting characteristics
Appearance: more or less bright straw yellow depending on the vintage.
Bouquet: the most fanciful scents of ripe fruit and an excellent mineral quality emerge, together with optimal freshness.
Flavour: warm and expansive, it envelops the palate with gentleness and character, ending with a lingering aftertaste; undoubtedly blessed with the structure provided by the Langa soils.

It is best to serve it at temperatures between 12-15°C.

This wine belongs to the ranks of structured whites, capable of evolving and improving as time goes by. It is very good with saltwater and some freshwater fish dishes, such as trout. The combination with white and red meats is exceptional when they are cooked slowly with delicate spices.

Barolo Docg Vigna Rionda

Riserva

Tasting characteristics
Appearance: bright garnet red.
Bouquet: from very intensely floral in the early years to characteristic “goudron” as it ages, through a multitude of scents which are always particularly seductive.
Flavour: probably the most potent of all our products, it perfectly summarises the essential characteristics of Barolo wine, such as grand structure, excellent alcohol concentration and tannins capable of guaranteeing very long ageing.
It opens up gradually and reaches its maximum and most important expression after ageing for a few years; this leads to its release for sale in the sixth year after harvesting with an increasingly consistent part of the wine being held back for release in the tenth year!!!!

It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C.

It expresses its best potential when served with meat dishes, rich in intense and persistent aromas and flavours, such as joints of lamb or kid. Also, thanks to its marked tannins, it is simply superb with the bitter-sweet alternation of furry and feathered game.
A complex wine, constantly in evolution, capable of guaranteeing unique sensations for refined and demanding palates.

About us

Company details

The first wine cellar was built by Giuseppe, son of the founder Giovanni, who, together with his sister Angela, extended his estate into the best soils and, in 1934, was one of the founders of the Consortium for the Defence of Barolo and Barbaresco. At that time, Giuseppe had six children. Three of them, Giovanni, Camilla and Renato, followed in their father’s footsteps, expanding the estate with the purchase of cru vineyards which are authentic jewels: Margheria, Parafada and Vigna Rionda.

In the 1990’s Franco and Roberto, both oenologists, joined the family estate. Their work condenses the experience of an entire family and the ambition of a new generation, determined to make an important contribution to the innovation of oenological and agronomical techniques and to the image of the estate in Italy and abroad.
