“Le Strette” is a name that identifies a precise place, a winery excavated in tuff, which melts with its territory and enhances it. The small winery “Le Strette” was founded in Novello in 1997, its name comes from the ancient hamlet in which it is located, in which the original narrow lane passes between some very old houses and leads to an enchanting view over the Langa hills that slope towards the valley, crowned by the Alps, with the vineyards in the foreground.
The owners are Mauro and Savio Daniele. After their studies in oenology and an extended experience as oenologists, their dream has come true: their passion for the vineyards, inherited from their father Giulio and their mother Giuliana, led them to the founding of their own winery, Le Strette, which is family-run, with the help of Gino Lagorio and his family. It is a small winery with a great history. Their production has increased remarkably over the years: from the first 4 thousand bottles in 1997 (Barbera and Dolcetto) to the present yearly production of 18 thousand bottles, obtained from around three and a half hectares of precious vineyards located in the best wine regions of the villages of Novello (Bergera, Pezzole, Pallaretta) and Barolo (Bergeisa). Mauro and Savio adopted a clear business philosophy: to enhance autochthonous vineyards (from the prestigious Nebbiolo to the rarest varieties, such as the Nas-cetta of Novello) to exalt the characteristics of the grapes and the territory. The wine is the final result of this process and the means that express these typical features. The experience that comes from the past combines with the experience in the field, along the way in which tradition meets technology and new knowledge.
The new winery, finished in 2002, is an example of this compromise between tradition and modernity, symbol of a gradual growth, in which Mauro and Savio strongly believe and that has been giving good results in the market as well. Le Strette sells in the USA, Switzerland, Norway, Holland, Belgium, Denmark and Italy, at the service of wine lovers who are looking for a special wine which expresses the Langa region.
